I have a Windows 2000 domain with two domain controllers,DC1 and DC2 both running Windows 2000 Server. In my domain, I have an Exchange 2000 Server running on Windows 2000. I will be replacing hardware on all three boxes as the current servers hardware is becoming obsolete. We plan on installing a 2003 domain "DC1 & DC2 along with an Exchange 2007 Server. What is my best and easiest migration path. This will not be a migration on the existing machines but on new hardware and 2K3 software.

I would do the domain controllers first, as that is minimal downtime. Exchange doesn't get upset too much by DCs being changed and removed.
Then I would do Exchange. Going to Exchange 2007 can only be done by a swing migration, which is where you install Exchange 2007 in parallel with Exchange 2000, replicate public and system folders across and then move the mailboxes. Fairly pain free.

Unfortunately both of the articles you have been given above on the msexchange.org site do not apply to you as you going to EXCHANGE 2007.

Simon.
