Adding a 2008 R2 Domain Controller to an existing 2003 R2 domain

I have a domain with two Domain Controllers currently running 2003R2.  I need to add a 2008 R2 DC to the Domain.  Is there  a clear path to do this?  Is there a problem with 32-bit vs. 64-bit?

There are no contratints, 2008R2 can function in just about any domain functional lev el:

Just follow the normal process for adding a DC and ensure your Functional level matches one of those at the link below.
