Upgrading from Windows NT

I know I'm a little late here :)

We have a rather small network. About 140 users and 4 servers. 1 PDC, no BDCs and an Exchange 5.5 server

We want to move to a Windows 2000 Active Directory Domain Network.

We purchased new servers but the RAID controllers do not have Windows NT drivers for them so I can't do the BDC -> PDC -> DC route.

We'd like to keep the domain name the same and have no interuption to email or logging on. I know I should do the PDC first. What would be the best way? We don't have a good way of backing up the PDC so I am kinda worried about doing an in-place upgrade. The system parition only has about 700 megs of space left.  

If I do have to setup a seperate domain and use the ADMT to migrate everything over, how do I change the domain Exchange 5.5 is linked to? Because doing it that way the network will have a new domain name. Is there a way to simply change the domain the Exchange 5.5 server is linked to?

Also in regards to the file server, how can I transfer shares and printer shares over to the new file server without having to reset everything?

Thank you so much for your time.
