Server 2008 features - set up domains?

By gary ·
We are running about 8-9 servers. The oldest is running server 2000, some are running server 2003 and the newest one is server 2008 standard. The PDC is running on a server 2000 machine and I think this is the only machine with AD running due to a recent electrical problem taking out one of the servers that was a BDC. I have been learning about server 2008 and want to activate some of it's features, (roles) and need to know the best way to do this. To be more specific, I want to work with this new machine as a print server, file server, and also do some things with Virtualization. What do you suggest I do to take advantage of the new 2008 features and will they work for these older machines? In other words, can I use the 08 server as the main workhorse to do this. Does it have to be a PDC or can it be just a member server to run some of these features?
