When the domains were the DNS was setup as Standard not active Direcotry Integrated. I would like to switch to AD integrated as it will make the migration process easier for our upgrade to a full 2008 DCs.

Any pre-cautions to take or simply just click on AD Integrated option within the zones?

Looks to be pretty straight forward

It's fairly straight forward and you litteraly just change the type in the p
DNS management console.

Just make sure your dc's are pointing to themselves for DNS using their own IP address not the loopback address and it should go through nice and smoothly

In case you currently have other DCs with DNS servers running secondary zones of your AD, DO NOT JUST CHANGE THEY TYPE!
If you just change the type on your primary server, the zone will automatically be replicated to the other DCs, which will now have two zone sources: the old secondary (text based) zone, and the new primary from AD.
Do the change during off-production hours.
Start by deleting the secondary zones from the other DCs; only then change the zone type on the primary to AD integrated. Do nothing on the other DCs, the zone will re-appear after the next AD replication, now as primary.
