Add a second Active Directory Domain

We have a some labs that I need to be able to manage with policy but I don't want them to be in the same domain as our regular staff.

What is involved with adding a second domain to my "Forest".    I think I need to have a separate controller/server for this second domain.  Is this as simple as it seems?  Am I missing something?  Can anyone share a few "Gotcha's"?

Thanks

The main reason for creating this second domain is security or insulation from the main staff domain.  Will a child domain provide this?
police will propagate to child domain , you need just to enable that on the child domain :
