See San's stuff, there is LOADS of documentation out there, just hit google :)

Once you have it installed, its a matter of moving mailboxes and connectors etc. Clients should move themselves.

Good luck, and enjoy your new Exchange server :)

Read them all, and understand them, there is no real "idiot" guide to it, by understanding the process you will be able to trouble shoot any problems etc.

Migrating a Server is easy if you know what your doing, just takes a bit of prep time.
