Windows 2000 Server TS move

I have an old server that has a Windows 2000 Server Standard with a 10 Cal TS on it. I wish to move the TS Cals to a newer 2000 Server. This older Server is starting to scare me. Since it is the AD Master I would also like to move all the master roles to the newer 2000 Server to prevent down time. Can you give me a step by step on how to perform these task? The other issue is the technician that installed the TS Cals is no longer available and he had the papper work for the TS.

The only way to move the TS licensing server is to have the license papers at hand, install and activate the new license server, then call the Microsoft Clearinghouse to re-issue your licenses (they're used to that). The TS CALs are bound to the server they're installed to, there's no other way to transfer them to a new one.
As far as transferring the roles is concerned, first make sure the new one is a global catalog:

Then transfer the roles:

Finally, for the sake of completeness, transfer the Licensing server to the new machine:
In AD Sites and Services, right-click "License Server" in the right pane, choose Properties, and move it to the new server (actually, the one that holds the PDC Emulator role).
