I'm migrating our companies  mail (about 50 mailboxes) from Exchange 2003 t 2010. Is this an automated process or do I need to manually copy pst file across to the new server.

Also, can both servers run side by side?  My plan was to move my mailbox and a few others to the new server, make sure it's running correctly and them migrate the rest of the mailboxes... Is the the correct way of doing this move?  Is it even possible?

Any help appreciated as I've never build an Exchange server before or migrated one.

You have to move the mailboxes over manually, but you can choose which ones (all/some/one) and schedule the move. You can run Exchange 2010 in an 2003 Organization without problem.
