If you have AD Integrated DNS on your 2003 server, then simply install the DNS Role on the 2008 R2 server and make sure you choose Active Directory Integrated, then it should pull a copy of the DNS on your 2003 server, wait 24-48 hours for it to replicate then uninstall DNS from the 2003 server.

Change any pointers in DHCP referencing the old DNS server to the new DNS server.

You can move DHCP to the new server - see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/962355

You can also move the FSMO roles http://www.elmajdal.net/win2k8/Transferring_FSMO_Roles_in_Windows_Server_2008.aspx

You will need to leave AD and Global Catalog on the 2003 Server otherwise Exchange will complain.

It won't hurt.  Moving DHCP is a little more complicated.

There is a good guide for migrations which includes all you need to know about moving DHCP to another server which is worth a read:

Just ignore the other steps!
