If I understand when installing exchange 2010 in coexistence with exchange 2003, the preparation depends whether it is in a single domain forest or multiple domain forest.

In a single domain there is no need to  type:
the /preparelegacyexchangepermissions
/prepareschema
/prepareAD
/prepareDomain

while in a multiple domain forest, we should go through that.

Please correct me if I am wrong

Thanks

Correct.
You can run the commands manually if you wish. That is often the need when the schema master is out of AD site. However if everything is on the same AD site, single forest, single domain then the GUI will do everything for you.

Download Exchange 2010 SP3 and install from that. The service packs are the complete product.

Exchange 2007/2010 setup requires the domain controller that serves as the domain schema master to be in the same site and domain as the local computer that is running Exchange setup.

The domain schema master controls all updates and modifications to the Active Directory schema. To resolve this, we need to run Exchange setup using the /prepareschema and /prepareAD switches from the same site and domain as the domain schema master.

For more information read "Exchange Server 2010 and 2007 Readiness" from technet.
