I am just running the scripts from the command line on the BDC (so far 
just the one BDC).  Our current plan for the domain is:

Building A:
PDC is a server that will just handle the the duties of being a PDC, 
little to no fileshares.  The Master LDAP is running on this server.
BDCa1 is the primary file server for Building A

Building B
BDCb1 is the primary file server for Building B

Building C
BDCc1 is the primary file server for Building C

Currently, the BDC I've talked about so far, is just a dummy server for 
testing.  And as of right now, we are not using a Slave LDAP server.

Thanks again, Craig.
