Potential Server conflicts

I set up a Windows Server 2003 running SharePointPortal 2003 and a client for testing on its own network. The server is running DNS, Domain Controler, IIS, DHCP, POP3, FilesSharing, Web, SQL2000

Now that the testing is done and it works, I need to know what needs to be done to safely add it to my companies internal network with its own domain and workgroup, exchange server etc. I know that I at least have to disable DHCP and move the server DNS entries to the internal DNS. Is it ok to have to domain servers on the same network? There over a hundred users on our internal network and I can not bring the network down as this will endanger my job ;)

It is ok to have multiple domains as long as they are diffrent names.

You can leave up DNS and set up replication between the 2 if you wish to host the DNS for that domain on that server.  or just add the domain name to the other DNs server and manually add hosts.

Definatly kill DHCP.  Other then that every thing else will be fine
