How to migrate corrupt Win 2003 server to new Win 2003 server

I have a Windows 2003 server that is part of a network that has a Small business server on it.   This Windows 2003 server is at a different location than the SBS.   We have had some issues with this server.  I have a new box with Windows 2003 server loaded on it that will replace the old Windows 2003 server.   I need to migrate the old one to the new one, but it has issues and I don't want to bring over bad issues to the new box.  What would be the best way to leave the old server intact and setup the new server with the exact same settings including name and ip address?    I know of course that if I name it the same name and give it the same ip, both of them can not be plugged into the lan at the same time.   Any ideas would be most appreciated.  Thanks,

Configure it as servername2 with a different IP.  Move everything over to it, cut off the old server and then change the IP Address of the new server to the old server and change the name to old server name.

I was hoping to have more step by step instructions than what was given.  I figured more experts would respond.  I ended up connecting the machine to the domain so to make it a secondary domain, the catalog came over showing the users.  I gave it the same ip as the old server, but kept it the new name to avoid confusion.  Things are working fine.
