I have been given the task of setting up a new MS 2008 server from an old slow MS 2003 sever.  

My server knowledge is limited to hardware, so I wanted to see if there were any how to's out somewhere on how I might precede with the task and move the numerous setting and files over from the old machine.

If no one knows of a place to find such information but knows how and would describe such here I'll be happy to kick the points up!

Thanks!

Well sometimes google is better in searching the MS site than MS itself :-~
