Replacing server?

Last Modified: 2012-08-31
I'm replacing a server in a single server environment with from the current windows 2000 server with a 2008 server. I added the new server to the domain. How do I make the new server the domain controller. I've found articles about transferring FSMO roles but none seem to work or they say to select things that aren't there. Does anyone have a link or a guide I can follow to transfer these functions to the new server so I can shut down the old one?
