Take a look at this question I helped with (has quick steps and link to step by step)

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_26358376.html

What I would highly recommend before anything is to put server 3 up.  Make that a second DC.  I'd always run any production network with two DCs (if one goes down it makes life much easier).  If this is a test lab then one DC can be fine.

Have you thought about going to 2008 R2 at this point.

Thanks

Mike

ok, in that case you can just add a new 2008 box and promote that, the links have the step by steps

Thanks

Meaning that in the 2008 DC promo process there will be a screen for DNS and GC, just make sure those two are checked.  Then your AD Integrated DNS information will replicate to the new DC.

Thanks
