Two part question:
Heard this was free, is that correct?
also, to prep AD there is a wizard i'm to run on the DC that can be downloade from MS.  Every search I have done takes me to Office Lynch server page.
So, how can I prep AD for the communication server

No, OCS 2007 R2 is not free. It is (was) a product available for purchase like exchange or sharepoint server. Lync Server 2010 is the latest version of this product, rebranded.

The OCS R2 media has all of the files necessary to prep AD for an install. There is no download.

In addition to what cgaliher, OCS R2, and Lynch server are both available in evaluation version for 180 days, with no charges, if you liked the product you can then purchase the required license and upgrade to license version.

for the AD Preparation the required wizard or cmd is on the installation media, you can download the evaluation version from Microsoft web site.
