Make sure that the server hardware, windows 2008 are 64 bit ones.

You need to prepare the schema in order to accept an exchange 2007 box, then move the mailboxes to the new server. If you use public folders, configure replication and wait for exchange to copy all the data to the new server. Once everything is in place, remove the exchange 2003 box.
