What's the step by step process for putting in a front-end server for exchange 2003? And when can I do it (how much downtime will it cause)? I just need the steps MS expects me to take, nothing related to external IPs or the like. Say if I have 5 exchange servers, and 2 are remote offices on other domains, and one needs to be a front end.

Is it as simple as going into exch system manager, right clicking on the server, select it as front-end, then immediately select the other servers as back-ends?
