 Join your new server to the domain and promote to a DC,  then transfer all FSMO roles, critical services and data off the old and power it down.

 No, you cannot unless you want to rebuild AD from scratch.

Don't think so.


You're correct, adprep is something you're going ot have to do. Before you can introduce Windows Server 2003 domain controllers, you must prepare the forest and domains with the ADPrep utility.

ADPrep /forestprep on the schema master in your Windows 2000 forest.
ADPrep /domainprep on the Infrastructure Master in each AD domain.
