Changing IP on a domain after migration

Hi,

I will be migrating from SBS 2008/Exchange 2007 TO  Win 2008 Ent/Exchange 2010 this weekend.  I believe I have the concept down and i've tested all my backups.

One thing I would like to do after migrating the Mailboxes is change the IP address of the New DC to the IP Address of the old SBS 2008 box. other wise I will have to many devices including Cisco equipments, printers to change the DNS pointer for.  

How would I go about getting this done?
I believe swing migration will let you do this, but they don't have anything for this migration process yet.
 any other tips would greatly be appreciated.

Once you have demoted the old server and remove the server from the network or change ip address the process is easy

1. Change IP address info including DNS in TCP\IP
2. run ipconfig /flushdns
3 run ipconfig /registerdns
4. Dcdiag /fix
5. And just in case restart netlogon service
6. Make sure you update DHCP so clients get new IP

They say I can run the sbs side by side for a few days.  Should I overhaul the whole thing over the weekend?
You can run SBS for a while but I wouldn't the weekend is always a good idea it would allow you get things done on your time and quicker then working around the users

a couple of other things to clarify.  
My DFS share is configured on a Wind2000 server box.  will I need to migrate during the upgrade?

 Also, my user my docs is also pointing to the Win 2000 server, will I have to do anything with that?
