    forgot to say my dc's are 32bit,

    so i think i have to do the following
    create a new dc with 2008 r2 installed
    transfer the roles from the old 2008 server to the new server 2008r2,
    rebuild the old server to server 2008r2
    then move the roles back if i need to

    sound about right?

    Yep - unfortunately, you cannot upgrade 32bit to 64bit
