Second, third, fourth, etc domains in a Forest - configuration question

I am managing a rebuild of a pair of networks bringing in all locations under one hat. I have a datacenter where masterdomain.local will be hosted in AD on a server 2008 machine as the PDC.  I have three other locations which will have ADCs at them, but they will be different domains in the same forest (loc1domain.local, loc2domain.local, etc). Do I have to set up the child domains on the PDC before I bring up the respective ADCs? Do I not touch the child domains until I dcpromo on the ADCs? Will I be able to manage all my users from within the PDC?

Am I making this more difficult than it has to be?
