Moving the primary domain controller

We are running a bank of Windows 2008 R2 servers and I want to introduce a new server(2008) and make it the PDC. After running DCPROMO on the new server, what are the steps I should take to make it the new master DC?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
