Upgrade/Migrate 2003 server to 2008

I have a Windows 2003 R2 SP2 server that I would like to upgrade to Windows 2008. This server is running as our PDC. At the same time (if possible) I would also like to migrate to a new server with updated hardware. My question is what would be the quickest method with the least amount of down time to accomplish this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
