is this kind of what you are looking for?

I'm assuming you want one forest with multiple OU's that are syncronized?

In order for you to create replication between the two Forests; the Forest Functional Level in both Forests would have to 2003. If you have a combination of 2003 and 2008 DCs.

The next step is then to create a Cross Forest Trust between the two Forests and you do this in Active Directory Domains and Trusts. Refer to the link below and this will provide you with a step by step guide.

What do you mean when you say "sync the accounts"  so are you saying you want johndoe in forest one and johndoe in forest2 and have those be the same?

Follow up questions, why do you want two forests?

Thanks
