Two Exchange Servers in one domain, different sites

I have one domain and currently one exchange server 2003 servicing 5 sites.  I would like to add another exchange server 2008 to the domain and help distribute mail as well as setup some sort of redundance.  Could someone walk me thru that process and or point me in the right direction?  Clustering seems the way to go but have never done so.  Thanks so much in advance for your help.

Exchange 2010 with a DAG and a CASArray for full redundancy.

Exchange server 2010 ... is one of the best at the moment so plan for it.

Do you have a Standard or Enterprise and what is the current environment - Mailbox and Usage ?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

We have both standard and Enterprise, environment is AD with multiple sites, Mailbox's are around 120 with medium usage.  Sorry, what is a DAG?

DAG is Database availability Group .... helps with High Availability :)

As you have quiet less users and you say the Data storage isnt that much .... why not plan to Migrate to Exchange 2010 :)
