Hi Jeff,
log in as the administrator on your old 2k3 server and from the cmd prompt, type " netsh dhcp server export c:\dhcplist.txt all "
this will export a txt file called dhcplist.txt to the c: drive, copy this to the new 2k3 server c: drive and from the cmd prompt type " netsh dhcp server import c:\dhcplist.txt all "

You can use the netsh tool to export your current DHCP database to a txt file:

netsh dhcp server export C:\dhcp.txt all.

Then import that file using netsh into the new DHCP database.
netsh dhcp server import c:\dhcpdatabase.txt all,

You can view detailed instructions in the following MS Knowledge Base article.
