The best thing to do is insert the Exchange CD and follow all the preinstallation steps that pop up on a checklist automatically before you install exchange. This will include some diagnostics and forestprep and domain prep.

1. Should i add the exchange machine first to the domain?
2. Should i give a static ip to the server
3. When should i run forestprep and Domain prep
these are the small things i need to know and any others that i have to plan.

1. Yes you should add the machine to the domain.
2. Yes give a static IP to the server. I am not sure if you have to but you would be better off to.
3. Like I said above follow all the preinstallation steps in order as the appear on the autorun file that runs when you put in the exchange CD and you will get the forestprep and domainprep instructions in there.
