Replication between 2003 and 2008 R2

We have an existing domain with a single 2003 server.  We just installed a 2008 R2 64bit server and promoted it to a DC.  All went well but the SYSVOL, etc. are not replicating.  I have tried stopping NTFRS, setting the origingal 2003 burflags to D4 and the 2008 to D2 and restarting NTFRS but it still is not replication.  Tried a 'Replicate Now' and still no replication.
I am rather new to this and don't know what to look for now.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

run the following the command dcdiag /q, repadmi /showrepl , gpotool and check any error occured.

Check the event viewer --> file replicaton service for any error event. If you got the lastest event id 13516 means your sysvol replicaton working fine.
