Load the server installation disk and browse to:
DriveLetter:\support\adprep

Find a file called adprep.exe or adprep32.exe.

It should be on the Windows Server installation disks, and I think this is the only official source for adprep.

Do you have either the 2008 or the 2008r2 installation CD's?  It is on both of those.

2008   =    \sources\adprep
2008r2 =  \support\adprep

AFAIK there still is not a way to download

Alternatively if you do not have the media download a trial copy of the server installation:

Actually, I believe if you are looking for the 64 bit version there is a way to download it from Microsoft.  See this KB:   http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919151
