Exchange server migration

I have installed Exchange 2003 (Currently using Exchange 2000) on a new different server. I have moved over a few test accounts and made sure things are fine, they seem to be.
What I need to know is;
After I move over all the active accounts this weekend is there anything special I need to do to the old Exchange 2000 server before decommissioning it?
And second question is, Public Folders, there doesn't seem to be the same sort of Exchange tasks option for moving public folders, any specific way that they need to be moved?

Any help or link to a site that supplies a checklist of "to do's" before decommission would be much appericated.
Thank you.

You need to get the public and system folders replicated. You don't move them as they can exist on more than one server.

If you think you are going to be able to move the mailboxes this weekend, then think again. Public and system folder replication off Exchange 2000 is very slow and you need to leave it at least a week. If you move mailboxes before the public and system folders have replicated you will have no free/busy information, not offline address book and probably no public folders.

My guide at http://www.amset.info/exchange/migration.asp covers what needs to be replicated.

There is a process to go through to remove that server from the network, again my guide covers it and also provides the links to Microsoft's KB article on the subject.
