Hi, there are quite a lot of labs aimed at different levels of skill, first question how do you plan to do this? In a VM? or on hardware? Personally I would go down the VM path. http://store.vmware.com/store?Action=DisplayPage&Env=BASE&Locale=en_AU&SiteID=vmwaus&id=ProductDetailsPage&productID=205902300&src=PaidSearch_Google_PersonalDesktop_WKSN_APAC_AU_EN_Brand&src=PaidSearch_Google_PersonalDesktop_WKSN_APAC_AU_EN_Brand
It's not cheap but well worth the investment.

This looks a good starting point http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/running-windows-server-2008-r2-installing-creating-lab-domain-controller-part1.html

You could build a server with AD, dhcp, DNS ect, then create a XPVM, join it to the domain, create users in AD and use their accounts on the XPVM and the users could be in different groups so you can see the difference how permissions work ect.

I personally prefer the Sybex books. If you are looking to get a good understanding of the OS and AD then go for the MCSA four book combo. It will give good overall coverage of the OS, DHCP, DNS, WINS, RRAS, Policy and how they all intertact with AD. Every section has several small labs that walk you through setting up and modifying the various components.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
