Do I join the 2008 Server to the 2003 server DC before running ADPREP? ADPREP is run from the 32bit 2008 disk on the 2003 DC correct?

No - I would run ADPREP first.

Join the server to the domain as a member server first.

You will need to run ADPREP32 /domainprep  and ADPREP32/forestprep before making the new machine a DC.

ADPREP32 - NOT ADPREP as your 2003 system is 32bit
