I need to move about 5 months/several GB of exchange 2003 database logs off a partition as soon as possible.
I have referenced Microsoft KB  
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/821915
and can see where I change the target folder.
Can I simply change the path and then copy over the files?  No need to shut down services or dismount store?
Can I start moving the files before I change the target path?

the log files move them selves when you change the log path.  you dont need to manually move them.

best way to do this is do a full backup of exchange (this will clear the logs for you) then change the log path.  and dbase path if required.

dont forget to setup the appropriate file permissions for the new log folder.
