Im migrating to a new 2003 server R2 box.  I ran dcpromo and added it to the existing domain.  I want to eventually get rid of the 2000 box.  It is my DC, schema master..etc.  How do i go about transferring roles to the 2003 box or please tell me whatever I need to do to achieve this.

Basically it comes down to the following:
* Make the new machine a Global Catalog
* Move the FSMO roles to the new machine
* For the sake of completeness, transfer the Licensing server to the new machine (AD Sites and Services, right-click "License Server" in the right pane, choose Properties, change it to the new machine.
* Move any other services (DNS, DHCP, whatever) running on the old machine to the new one
* Change the DNS settings on the clients, if necessary
* run dcdiag and netdiag to make sure everything is still running OK.
* dcpromo down the old machine (or shut it down for a while first, to check if everything's still working)
* Remove the old machine from AD Sites and Services
