windows 2008 sbs ip address

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a 2003 sbs running on ip address of and need to make my windows 2008 sbs replace it with the same ip. Is this a problem? can i somehow through bridges/routers/firewall/??? get the server 2008 sbs to act as this address for all other clients and servers in the network? I never config. the first build and would never have gave this mix to start with. but now i am racking my brain as to how to NOT reinvent the wheel as many reasons to try to keep the same ip on this replacement mach. I need for everyone to think the server is at address, seems when i change it , along with everyone else i have replication probs. and can't "SEE" the other servers, I can see the 2008sbs from them but not the other way....help....keep in laymans terms please as much as possible...thx
