How do I remove my first Exchange Server?

I upgraded from Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003.  New hardware.  The Exchange 2000 box is still online, but all of the mailboxes and public folders have been migrated to the new server.

Are there any other steps beyond simply uninstalling Exchange Server that I need to take to decomission my first server?

NOTE: Although the article says "Exchange Server 2003" it also applies to 2000 (see the bottom of the article where it lists the software it applies to).
