Bridging Fileshares onto another server.

I have an existing Windows 2000 domain set and running, however the install is causing many problems, and we've made the decision to upgrade the hardware and buy a new server.

I'd like to build and install the new server from scratch, create a new domain in a new ip range and gradually move the clients over to the new machine, then once all the clients are logging into the new server copy all the data accross and turn off server1.

To do this I'd need access to the data stored on server1 (old machine), via both machines.  Initially I thought I could simply map a drive from server 2 to server1 and then share that mapping to the clients.  Upon trying this I realise that you cannot share a mapped\shared drive.

Whats the best way for me to go about this, the reason I chose this route is so that I can always fall back to the old server in case of any problems.

Have you concidered setting up a trust relationship between the 2 Domains? That way users will be able to authenticate to both machines to view all data.
You set the trust relationship in Active Directory Domains and Trusts.
Try here for info on trusts.
