we have an exchange 2007 at one time there was an exchange 2000 as well, whom ever did the upgrade did not remove the 2000 correctly so now in AD there is reference to it under cn=first administrative group,cn=companyName,cn=Microsoft exchange,cn=services,cn=configuration,dc=companyName,dc=com, under cn=companyName,cn=Microsoft exchange,cn=services,cn=configuration,dc=companyName,dc=com there is also a cn=exchange administrative group (some number)

my question is can we delete the entire cn=first administrative group, as there are several references, to the extinct server, or do we have to go in and remove just those entries

Do not remove the Entire First Administrative Group. Microsoft recommends leaving them alone. You can however go in using ADSIEdit and delete the referencing objects for the 2000 Exchange Server. Be careful when using ADSIedit.
