If this is your first domain controller, then you need to create the forest.

This TechNet article takes you step by step through the process - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc755059(v=WS.10).aspx

If you already have domain controllers, then you need to install the ADDS features (Active Directory Domain Services) to Windows and then run DCPromo. See here for details - http://www.rackspace.com/knowledge_center/article/installing-active-directory-on-windows-server-2008-r2-enterprise-64-bit
