It sounds like you only have one server so I am assuming that everything is on this one box.  Is your 2003 server a DC? DNS? DHCP? WINS?.  

We do this often and the only thing you will need to do change your static IP's.  DNS is most likely dynamic for at least your clients so this will not need a lot of attention, however if you have any A records that are static these will need to change of course.

DHCP will also be affected if you have it on the server.  Your scopes will need to be updated.

One of the things I would stress is if you have a firewall, make sure all your necessary ports are open.

This move should not be a big deal.

Also you will need to contact your ISP and make sure they are point to your SMTP box for internet email to get to your email system.
