Installing Exchange 2010

Hello,
I am beginnign to research what will be involved with setting up Exchange 2010. So far, I have installed it in a vmware image, and I wandered through all the system requirements until I was able to get it installed. So, I have some level of comfort (but not excitement) in doing this. Now, here is the potentially tough problems.

Currently, I have one domain and I am using Exchange 2007 on Windows Server 2003. I want to setup Exchange 2010 on a brand new machine with Windows Server 2008 R2. Once I get 2010 up and running I am going to remove 2007 from the domain. What is the best approach to do this?

My Exchange 2007 seems to be working fine, except that OWA never really worked. I messed something up there.

If I install Exchange 2010 into the same domain as my Exchange 2007 server can I install it as the only Exchange Server for the domain or will it complain and know that Exchange 2007 is already installed? Once I get 2010 installed I will route new incoming emails to it. Then, I will uninstall Exchange 2007 from the other machine, which is also a DC.

By the way, I have two DC's and they are both Windows Server 2003.

I would like some guidance from someone who has done this before, and want to be very cautious.

Thank you,
John

Here are complete guides on HT,CAS,ET, MBX server http://microsoftguru.com.au/category/exchange-server-2010/page/2/

Exchange can co-exist with exchange 2007 or exchange 2003. So exchange 2010 will not cry if it sees exchange 2007 in AD schema. You can make a complete transition to exchange 2010. you can also install CAS in your environment which was stuffed up before and use reverse proxy to publish to extranet.

Do you want to have cluster than I will explain cluster deployment also. It would be good if you can have Forefront TMG with Exchange than you can secure exchange and publish internally and externally.

Let me know whether this help you.
