Phase out 2000 servers

I am looking to demote and get rid of 2 Windows 2000 server from our domain. I am looking to replace them with Windows 2008 servers.

We have a 2003 Exchange server as well.

I would like to get rid of the 2000 servers but I have not been able to because of the win2k signature on the domain. I tried to implement a windows 2008 exchange server but could not because the domain was created by a 2000 server.

I would to know How I can move forward. I' am not sure if I am explaining this correctly so any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Win2k servers are the DNS server and file share servers.
