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?
