Run "Configure Your Server" on the P4, and select "One or more servers are already running on my network" and under the Active Directory Installation Wizard, select "Additional Domain Controller for Existing Domain" and then follow the instructions on-screen making sure all DNS entries point internally. Follow the instructions and you're all set. Just remember that the new server should be set to "Global Catalogue" and to transfer the 5 FSMO roles to the new server and keep checking to see if replication works properly between the DCs.
