Will Server08 x64 non-R2 and Server08 R2 cohabitate as DC's in the same enviroment without issues?

Already have Server08 R2 in the enviroment. Want to introduce Server08 x64 SP2 as additional DC. Will we run into any issues?
Thanks

They will work together fine.  You will have to run adprep to extend the schema before you are able to join the 2008 R2 DC.

Thanks, Domain has already been prepped and the R2 server is already the primary DC. Any issues?

OK so you are adding a non-R2 to an existing R2 domain.  This will work fine as long as your domain and forest functional level are not at Windows 2008 R2 level.
