adprep and forestprep for server 2000 and server 2008

By gary ·
Running server 2000 with service pack 4 and running server 2008 as a member server. I want to make the new server 2008 a DC so that ad will replicate and I have two DC's. I ran adprep on the 08 server and that didn't work. Then I ran it on server 2000 and that didn't work. Server 08 tells me that I have to run adprep /forestprep. I go to the cmd prompt and I have ran it on both machines and all I get is the same message on the 08 machine: run adprep /forestprep. All this does is open a window with files in it and closes very quickly. I don't think anything really runs. I ran adprep on both machines and all that happened is a flash of a cmd window opening and some file activity and then it closes. Not sure where to go from hare. I hope I didn't screw something up running on both machines.
Server 2008 is a 32 bit machine... not sure how to procede????
