Adding DNS server to network

I'm adding a 2008 DNS server to my network.  My plan is to add this new DNS ever and take the other one off-line.  Will the DNS server pick up all the settings, inc root forwarders one I add it as a role?

This is not very clear for me.  Do I install the DNS server first of copy the DNS file across first?

Do I need to manually create the Zones again on the new server or just copy across the DNS folder and restart the service?

It's ok, I restarted the server and the DNS zones copied across.

You can create zones and be secondary but later you must to convert to primary and server thas has primary now will be demoted.
