Hi
You can do it both ways. One of the important things to remember is to
create the new site location and assign the new subnet and move the DCs into
that new site, additionally you may also consider to force replication (at
least for the first moved DC) to sync with all DCs.

I hope that the information above helps you.
Have a Nice day.

Thanks for the info and quick reply Jorge...is there any whitepaper or
resource you can point me to that describes configuring site locations in
AD? I know just enough to be dangerous <g>
