You're supposed to use the local admin account, which you can't do once you've promoted your server, unless you use AD Recovery mode.
Extend the 2003 AD schema for 2008 using adprep from the 2008 CD.
Join the 2008 server to the domain, doing this first before dcpromo will help identify any connectivity issue or configuration issues with the existing domain before you run into them in the middle of dcpromo.
DCPromo the 2008 server. this will install the AD DS role, assuming your DNS is AD integrated, install DNS as part of the DCPromo process. **Before you demote your 2003 DC be sure to point the 2008 DC TCP/IP DNS setting to itself**
Move the FSMO roles from 2003 to 2008
DHCP: migrate IPv4 scopes from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008
1. On the Windows Server 2003 DHCP server, go to a command prompt
2. Type the following: netsh dhcp server \\yourserver export C:\dhcp all
3. Move this file to the new Windows Server 2008 server
4. Type the following: netsh dhcp server \\yourserver import C:\dhcp all
5. Restart DHCP and verify the database has moved over properly
You can refer to KB325473 directly to migrate DHCP database.
You seem to imply your environment is a single server, but if you have more than one once you have completed all your 2003 DCs to 2008 DCs migrations consider switching the forest to "Windows Server 2008" mode and migrate to DFS-R replication for sysvol.

Since I don;t have a forest, I am assuming not the first command but the last two? Should I run all three anyways?
