Suppose you have copied the Adprep folder on C: drive, you have to run command as below:

C:\Adprep>adprep32.exe /forestprep

If it is 32 bit you need to run adprep32

You need to put the 2008R2 DVD in the 2003 machine (if it autoruns, cancel it), and then run adprep (or Adprep32 if its a 32bit 2003 system), from the sources folder on the DVD.
