After reading the posted links i discovered that the last administrator made the exchange server a Domain Controller. Now What?

Thanks in advanced,

You should never have an exchange server be a Domain Controller obviously unless its SBS. Setup the new server join it to the domain and install Exchange you will then be able to migrate all mailboxes, offline address book and public folders to the new server pretty easily. Get the other server up and joined and I can help you some more if needed.

You can actually do this with both servers online move mail boxes one at a time. I've never had an issues migrating this way. Now going to Exchange 2007 is a bit different.
