    Do i need Windows 2008 R2 to update schema or do i need only Windows 2008
    itself to update schema ?

    2003 r2 to update schema ?

    Windows Server 2008 R2 is a Beta product - I'm not sure why you are
    considering using its schema update.
    Windows Server 2008 schema update is necessary if you are planning on adding
    a Windows Server 2008-based domain controller to your existing Active
    Directory forest. Based on your post, it appears that you simply want to
    take advantage of Windows Server 2003 R2 schema extensions - and if so, you
    should be using the adprep from the second CD of Windows Server 2003 R2
    installation media...

    another question:

    1. ignore 2008 r2 as my guys told me it is available when it is not !!!
    2. if i update the 2008 schema and if i want to run DFS, can i use windows
    2003 r2 OS as DFS instead of using windows 2008 OS ?

    As far as I understand, Windows Server 2008 schema extensions include those
    introduced in Windows Server 2003 R2 - so yes, you should be able to use
    Windows Server 2003 R2 based DFS...
