How to add one more DC to the existing 2008 domain/ forest?

Our only one existing dc is on a 2008 server. I just set up a new 2008 R2 and wanted to add it to this domain using dcpromo.exe. But I got an error saying I have to run adprep.exe /forestprep. Okay, it thought I just went ahead run it on the 2008 R2 but I got another error saying I have to run adprep.exe on a DC.  Okay, then I have to run adprep.exe on the 2008 server as it is only one dc at this moment. But question to you, which version of adprep.exe should I use? Should I use the one from 2008 R2 or from the existing 2008 server's ?  Please help.

Run it from the 2008 R2 disk. You not only need adprep, but the schema definition files. All of those are in the same folder as adprep on the disk.

R2 uses a different schema.... it will update the forest and such before adding your second DC

once you go to R2 you cant go back....
