I have a 2003 server that has dns dhcp exchange on it and it is the only domain controller in the org.

I just built a 2008 server and put it on the network.

what steps should I take to migrate the dc over to the new server and remove it from the old one. we are going to use the other server as a backup at a DR location. I also need to move all objects as well.

run DCPromo on the new box, move your mailboxes and manually migrate your DHCP scopes. Simply promoting the server to be a DC will take care of replicating all your directory information.
Then un-install exchange and dcpromo down the "old" server.
