Seperating Exchange Server 2000

We are going to replace our aging Windows 2000 DC with a new hardware that will be running Server  2003 R2 and then transfer the roles, but our DC also has Exchange 2000 running it, which is not best practice and we want to replace it with Exchange 2007 running on its own Server.

What steps do I need to take to achieve this ??

bear in mind that exchnage 2007 will have to sit on 64bit windows, but other than that this move should be strightforward - if time consuming - see

KCTS - Thanks for the reply.

In simple steps, does this mean that I will install Server 2003 R2 on to a new Server and Promote it to a DC, then transfer the roles form the old DC, I will then Install Windows 2003 R2 64bit onto another Server and install Exchange 2007 and then perform a Transition from the old 2000 Exchange.

Do I need to run Adprep etc on the new 2003 R2 Server or can I just install the o/s and promote it.
