Generally you would install it on the non-dc server.  The only reason you would to install on the DC (other than wanting to make life difficult later on) is if you have a resource-intensive application on the second server like SQL Server 2005.  

Yes, you will need to have IIS installed with NNTP and SMTP services running.  There are other pre-requisites if this is the first Exchange Server, i.e. forestprep and domainprep.  I encourage you to read through this guide: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/exchange/Guides/Ex2k3DepGuide/fa02f087-7fe7-4eb7-b859-12632d762f9e.mspx?mfr=true.  The actual step-by-step instructions for the installation itself are under the "Installing New Exchange 2003 Servers" section, but there are valuable pre- and post-installation considerations and steps that will help you a lot as well.

Yes, I agree. Install it on the non-dc server.

If you start setup from the starting splash screen of the Exchange CD (or by doubleclicking setup in the root directory of the CD) you will get into a nice wizard that leads you step-by-step with prerequisites including domainprep and forestprep and so on.
