We are replacing an old 2003 R2 SP2 server (Domain controller/ DNS /  file sharing) with a new Enterprise 2008 Server in a 25 node network.
The new server will become the sole Domain controller and File Server. The old Server will  be decommisioned.

Additionally,
1) This is the first step toward a WAN design with the five other locations accessing via VPN.  No other servers will be deployed at the remote locations as far as we know at this time.

2) We will also be deploying a 2008 Exchange Server in primary site  the months to come.

I need some up front expert and accurate guidence in this project design and implementation, not just some  MS link.

I am fact gathering for the site and will  create and implement a MS Project plan.
If you have a MS Project plan used in the past that  I can se as a guide, that would be awesome!

So, anyone up for supporting this cause ?  Any  information is greatly appreciated.
