I need to know what steps to take in relocating my website from my server 2000 to my 2003 server.  The destination server is also my Portal 2007 server.
What challenges am i going to expect or is this a pretty easy process.

Well, for static pages, you simply copy the files from one dir to another. With mysql, there are a couple of options. The easiest is to use mysqldump and copy the resulting text file to the new server and just load it in. If yours are the only databases on the computer, you can simply copy all the files from the old data dir to the new one.

Here is my current config. server1 has my website on it and server 2 has portal on it.

I have moved the files to the server2 and and created the site and can open the site in iis but it says it start the site due to something is using the port.  I know you can have multiple websites with the same port 80.  what am i doing wrong?

well, you can have multiple sites with port 80, as long as they have distinct ips. Make sure that you database connections aren't looking for "localhost", which is now a different machine.
