Did you follow this article at MS for removing Exchange 5.5:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=284148

That goes through every stage that you need to, which includes replication of the free/busy information.

Have you removed the replica to the Exchange 5.5 from the new server and ensured the the new server is listed as a replica for every folder?

For the free busy connector then you should be able to delete it, as there is no equivilent in Exchange 2003. Exchange 2003 does have a Schedule Plus element, but this is managed via the system folders.

If you have removed all the replicas for the OAB folders then that AD entry should be redudant and can be deleted, but you have to be careful.
