Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007 Public folder migration

I need to move my public folders to an Exchange 2007 server so I can decommission the old 2003 server.  I reviewed the SBS2003-SBS2008 migration documents which suggest that I run the follow commands:

Get-PublicFolderStatistics server sbs2003

This results in the message:

?The server 'sbs2003' is running Microsoft Exchange 2003 or earlier.?
At line:1 char:1
+ G <<<< et-PublicFolderStatistics -server sbs2003

It also suggests I run the moveallreplicas.ps1 script, but this also has a problem because I of the "Exchange 2003 or earlier" error.  It seems like the documentation is incorrect.   It did create the public folder database automatically the documentation on Technet under "Move Exchange Server public folders" at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc664194.aspx says that it will not do.

How can I move the public folders?

You don't have to use the Exchange 2007 server at all.
All the script does is add the server to the list of replicas and then remove them. That can be done manually (And I actually prefer to do so).

Therefore use the Exchange 2003 server.
You have two options.
1. Use ESM to set the replica settings, setting it at the top of the tree and the using the tool to propagate down.
2. Get the pfmigrate script from Microsoft and use that to add the new server to the list of replicas.
