New SCCM 2007 setup

Hi Everyone,
I have two W2K3 R2 domain controllers (PDC/BDC) that also serves as DNS servers.   I want to install an SCCM 2007 server on a W2K8 server.  I have no clue on how to do this.  Does the SCCM box have to be a DC?  Must it also be a DNS server?  I have it running as my DHCP server right now.  I have setup IIS 7 on it with BITs and all that.  i have downloaded the SQL 2005 that comes with it.  i'm not sure what to do.  i don't want to mess up AD.  so, if someone will please help me with the setup, i'd greatly appreciate it.

No it will not mess AD. SCCM does not have to a DC or DNS
Use SQL 2005 with SP2
For installing site system roles on windows 2008, you need to modify settings in IIS

anub is right - but just to add a bit more clarification... not only does SCCM not have to go on a DC/DNS box, it is strongly recommended that it does not go on a DC/DNS server... your SCCM box should preferably be dedicated.
I will disagree with the SQL comment though - no reason to use SQL 2005 over SQL 2008 - especially considering -
