Move DFS Root without replicating all data

We currently have an SBS server 2008 box that is host to a DFS domain based namespace root.  We are migrating this to Windows 2008 Enterprise server.

The DFS system is replicated to a number of sites over a pathetically slow WAN link.  There is approximately 1GB of data in the DFS system.  Full replication can take up to a week!

I would like to know how I can migrate the root from the SBS box to the new box WITHOUT replicating all the data again?

Sorry - my previous question stated 1GB.  It should have been 1TB of data!   I will investigate the answer from jakethecatuk and get back

The File consolidation is not supported on Domain controllers.  As mentioned we are migrating from SBS to Enterprise.  One of these tasks is to migrate the AD.
