ok... here goes...

once you have the base build of the server, install a dns server. make this the primary server for your domain something like birdbrain.local will be great, whilst you can use co.uk and .com domains, I advise you don't since this can cause problems...

once the dns server is installed use the run menu to launch


this will begni the process of updating the server from a standalone server to an active directory server...

the wizard will guide you through the rest.
