There's no info at that link I don't think. Anyway, it's quite easy.
Install Samba4 on the sata but don't provision. Then join it as an
additional DC. I'd leave it like that. If you need to lose the pata
altogether, like if it's giving disk errors, then grab (seize I think
they say) the fsmo's from the pata first before demoting it.
