I have an exchange 2003 cluster whereas one node is the bridgehead and all mail flows through it. I recently deployed exchange 2010 into the same environment and it has been working fine. My exchange 2003 server is still the bridgehead and both exchange versions will run together in the same Org going forward.
I would like to make exchange 2010 the bridgehead and alleviate the load on the exchange 2003 box. What must I do on exchange 2010 etc?

You need to create a Send connector on the Exchange 2010 Hub Transport role and configure the Receive connector to fit your needs. For details have a look at:

Actually I would not delete the existing SMTP connector in 2003 until you verified that mail flow is fine through 2010. Just configure the SMTP connector to only handle a specific domain (can be ficticious). Have a look at Figure 4 in the following article:

http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/configuring-smtp-connector.html

Likely you will have an address space configure for SMTP with "*" which means it will handle all domains. Now you should configure the Send connector in 2010 to handle all domains and set the address space in the 2003 send connector to something like "xyz.net". If you experience issues in mail flow through 2010 you can easily revert back to the 2003 send connector by using the "*" again.

Hope this helps.
