Small Business Backup DC migration Path.
issue: My Client has been using his single Domain controller as remote app server and is now completely infected with everything possible.
Still boots and services are running. including DHCP.

I have a new installation of windows 2003 Server ready to take over. AD, DNS and DHCP but I am concerned about the proper migration path
I am assuming I can add AD and DNS without issue. Is there a way to export the DHCP settings into a file to be imported after taking the other server offline.
What other considerations might there be.
