I have been asked to merge our AD tree with an acquisition we recently acquired. Is there a clear documented path to follow for this?

What are the pitfalls?  Assume there will only be one forest when complete..  However if the complexity is to much I will work on a multi-forest permission setup..

They more than likely have there own mail EXG mail system that will have to merged as well..
