Implementing AD in remote office

By boomio ·
We have just upgraded our network from nt4 to server 2003 in our main office but now I need to do similar in our remote office.
Basically the AD will be shared between the two, but the remote office will have its own seperate DNS,DHCP, file service and print service.
We will be using a new machine in the remote office with server 2003 on it.
Has anybody got a good idea's or a reference point as to how I could start implementing this?(and please dont tell me to search the MS website, it drains my will to live trawling through that site)
