Yes. I thought the DC with the FSMO role "PDC" would be a good choice to 
be the "Master", because some Microsoft tools, like the GPO console, can 
be configured to connect to the PDC automatically. And group policies is 
one of the most important things, stored on the SysVol share.

No problem. It's good to get improvement suggestions. I'll tonight add 
some more information to the HowTo, to be more specific on that.
