Best procedure for migrating Exchange 5.5 on NT to Exchange 2003.

I have an exchange 5.5 server that is running on NT 4 and is a member of the old NT domain that we have. We do have AD installed and most of the users login to AD at this point.

We would like to Migrate to Exchange 2003 on a new Windows 2003 platform. What is the best way to go about this.

No one "best" method. Really depends on your internal deadlines and personal preferences. This should cover it though, Chapter 4

followed the the recommended link and it got me all the way to the excange 2003 install and it fails with Setup encountered an error while attempting to bind to the Exchange server "[Server_Name]":0xC103FC93(64659): The Exchange 5.5 directory service could not be contacted. Please ensure that the service is running properly, that it is listening on the correct port, and that you have the appropriate permissions needed to connect to this server.
