SBS 2008 Migration with public IP

Hi there

Doing a migration from server 2003 AD to a small business 2008 . Following the basic install for migration , but ran into one glitch.

Client uses Public IP's because of internal legacy business system and cannot change to private.addresses.

SBS 2008 hangs the point when it searches and find the router and says I have public IP's . I created and have mounted a USB key file with attended install to do the migration and list the public ip addresses in there.

Any ways around this , aside from dropping the 2003 server to private, which BTW will cause havoc in AD as ALL the rest of the domain would have to stay on the public ip for the term of the migration.

I assume after the successful migration I could change both ip's back to public, but I am sure will create more grief with basic 2008 setup.
