I understand that currently your SharePoint farm is running under 32 bit. So if you are migrating to Server 2008 which means 64 bit make sure that your current farm version is atleast on SP1. After that perform a fresh install of SharePoint 2007 64 bit on new server hosting 2008 R2. Move the database to the new SQL instance and run psconfig wizard.For more information please check the document attached.

Is SharePoint and SQL on different machines?

If so, the white paper referenced above is a great "how to".  You will basically deploy SP onto the new server, join it to the farm, move all services, then remove the old server from the farm.

By the way, this is how you would move it regardless if you were switching from 32 to 64 bit.

You had two questions opened, correct?  Just take the solution from both and that should point you in the right direction.  You can email (look in my profile) me if you need assistance.
