If you are learning virtualization for the first time, I would recommend using VMware Workstation.

VMware Workstation shows the Guest operating system in a Window, allowing you to "see" what's going on; and it is far more user friendly than Virtual PC, by the sounds of it.

After getting the Guest Server 2008 running; it should be similar to joining any other system to the domain-
Right-Click on "My Computer", and select "Properties"
In the "Computer Name" tab, click "Change"
Change the selection at the bottom to Domain, enter your domain name, and click OK.
