Windows Server 2003 \2008 RDP License migration

Hello - I have a Windows Server 2003 Domain Controller that is dying. I have installed a new Windows Server 2008 Domain Controller. It is not in the same Domain, but it is on the same network (from an IP standpoint). I have 4 RPD licenses on the old server. I want to move those licenses to the new server. The new server has 5 CALS that came with the server. How do I move the RDP licenses from the old server to the new server?

All three respondents are correct in a sense. We ended up calling Microsoft, and yes, you can migrate licenses from one server to another, but only from Windows Server 2008 to Windows Server 2003. The likelihood of that is almost nil since most migrations would occur in the other direction. So, I'd have to say that the respondents who said it wouldn't be possible are correct, but then so was the respondent who said that we should call Microsoft. It was an exercise in clarification, if not in futility.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
