What is the best method to adding a new exchange server into the current enviornment and removing the existing exchange server?

here is a little backgound info...

there was an exchange 5.5 server a while back. then, they put in an exchange 2k3 server, but not properly removing the 5.5 server. so now in the system manager, there are 2 servers, the old 5.5 server is greyed out. when i put in the new server i would like to get rid of the old 5.5 server from appearing. i noticed on the old 5.5 server, which is now being used as the intranet server, still has exchange installled.

any help would be appreciated.

You need to get rid of the Exchange 5.5 server first and all traces of the Exchange 5.5 servers.
This kb article should provide a good start.

Once you have done that, if you want to introduce another Exchange 2003 server then simply swing it. http://www.amset.info/exchange/migration.asp
