Move DFS Hub to new server

I have a Windows 2003 DFS server. It's Active Directory based with a hub and spoke topography. My server is the Hub. I need to decommission the current server and make another Windows 2003 server (with a different name) the new hub.
Is there a best method for doing this?
We have four other spokes, all on Windows 2003 server, that will remain the same.
None of the servers are domain controllers or have other roles.
 
I've done a lot of googling but haven't run into this particular scenario.

What I do is to add your new server to the replication groups, and let DFS-R replicate everything over. Once replication is complete, I modify the DFS namespace as appropriate. You can then remove the old hub server from the DFS replication and retire it.
