Hi Etectonics.

Think really carefully about putting exchange on a DC - bad for security, bad for performance.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/bb330842.aspx has all you need to know about the deployment, including a lab where you can do a 'dry-run'.

(The same considerations should be made to any version of exchange, not just 2007..)

Agree with what Dave said its not a good practice to have exchange on DC.
http://www.petri.co.il/problems_with_exchange_2003_installed_on_domain_controllers.htm
exchange 2003 installation on DC is same as installing a normal exchange server.
Few things to rember.
You can't install and make the server a DC.
Once you install exchange on a dc .don't try to demote the domain controller.
