2000 SBS upgrade/migration to 2003 Enterprise

I have an 2000 SBS DC/Exchange server I need to upgrade to 2003. I have approx 45 users with Exchange Mailboxes I have no need to transfer public folders. I have started by building a 2003 ent DC and joining it as a secondary.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!

There is a good set of instructions for migrating Exchange 2000 to 2003 here:

http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Migrating-Exchange2000-Exchange-2003-Hardware.html

You can then move the FSMO roles to your new 2003 server, transfer all related shares etc, and then remove Exchange 2000 and DCPromo the 2000 box out.

If you have no other 2000 DCs on the network move the forest and domain to 2003 native mode for full AD features.
