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?

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
