I would like to know if its possible to move directory services off sbs 2003 to windows 2008

-sbs2003 is on very old hardware
-sbs2003 no longer uses exchange and sharepoint (has been moved fully to bpos)
-only AD, DNS and DHCP being used

I want to move all current domain services to a new windows 2008 R2 server and have it handle it, I will be running Hyper-V role as well on this box so running SBS2008 is not an option

I have no intention on installing Exchange, the current SBS 2003 box no longer uses it, all Exchange services have been disabled, I only want to transfer the directory services, DNS and DHCP roles, also I may be moving this to a 2003 server box not 2008 for the time being.

so is it safe to say I can do all the steps you sent me and move directory services etc to another 2003 box and skip all the steps that mention exchange?
