Our current network is a mixture of 2003 and 2008 servers.
I am setting up a certificate server in Windows 2008. In order to use the 2008 Certificate Templates I need to update my schema to 2008, otherwise I will have to use the 2003 templates.
How do I tell if my schema has been updated to 2008 to use the 2008 Certificate templates over the 2003 templates?

You mean the schema of your active directory, which involves upgrading your DCs to 2008. Do you have any 2008 server which is a DC?

I'm assuming that you already ran adprep/forestprep and adprep/domainprep from the Windows 2008 installation CD?
