I was wondering if anyone knows an easy way to migrate dhcp from a 2000 DC to a 2008 DC?  Or is it even necessary, could i just rebuild the scope and authorize?

You could just rebuilt the scope and authorize. But what you have to do to make sure you don't get ip conflicts is to go the the properties of the DHCP server.
And go to the advanced tab. There is an option to prevent conflicts. You can set this to 1.
Now the DHCP server will first check if the IP is already in use.
