Move Exchange 2003 Public Folders to Exchange 2007

I am migrating from SBS2003 to SBS2008 Premium edition.  Following all steps in Windows Small Business Server 2008 Migrate to SBS2008 from SBS2003 document from microsoft.  
I have successfully moved all user mailboxes to new server/echange now wish to move the public folders over.  I have searched all over and keep coming up with 2 ways of moving the public folders.
1.  Using SBS2003 esm navigate to public folder store, right-click on public folder group and choose Move All Replicas.  
When I attempt this method the window for choosing the destination server pops up but when I click the browse button I get nothing.  I tried navigating to network and sharing the new server but ESM still shows nothing to choose from.

2. Using SBS2008 Exchange Management Shell to run the moveallreplicas.ps1 script.
When running this script it does nothing and gives no error message.

Neither method will work for me.  Can any one help with this.  Please be detailed as I am new to exchange.

Moving public folders can take quite a lot of time - even days to replicate correctly.

I found a similar article but I cannot get past the add "To add the Exchange 2007 Public Folder database to the replica list on the Exchange 2003 Server" part.  when i try i get the following error message: "there are no public stores which do not have a replica of this folder"
does anyone know what that means?

On EX2003 on specific public folder properties - replication tab - do you have listed both servers?
What does details button says?
Are you referring to part on your article? If so, can you post the link?
