Upgrading from NT 4.0 to Windows 2000

I'm upgrading to Windows 2000, and i have to transfer control of the network to another Windows 2000 Server, i'm taking the server I did the upgrade on offline as soon as i finish.

Here is my methodology for the upgrade

introduce a new BDC, promote to PDC, upgrade PDC to Win2k, then run dcpromo to install AD onto an existing windows 2000 server

I know i need to transfer global catalog and some other stuff - this is what i need a hand with
