Easy way to move my IIS7 website to another server?

My website has more than a dozen ASP.NET applications, 50,000 + pages.
I want to move the whole site to a new server.

I'm trying to use WebDeploy to do this.  I've exported my whole www.mysite.com.

But on the new server, when i try to import my website using webdeploy, it is forcing me to import it under "Default Web Site".  The webdeploy tool only becomes available when I click an existing website (i.e. Default Web Site).  But I need to import an entire website underneath "sites" in IIS, making it a ROOT site, not a sub-application beneath a site.

I do not want my whole website to be "under" a default website.  My site IS the default website.

is this making sense?  How do I copy a full IIS 7 website complete with a dozen applications and several application pools onto a new IIS7 server  

So am I using the right tool (web deploy) to do this?  or is there an easier way?

You should use the IIS export configuration and import it into your new server, but I would also transfer the data over using ROBOCOPY (or something similar) so you can preserve all the folder and file permissions already configured in your old location.
