The Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit has such plans as well as the 'in a Nutshell' books about 2000/2003 Server from http://www.ora.com

Some will just copy the files over, but that may be too simple for some needs. The books cover different scenairos and methods.

You might want to think of hiring a computer consultant to help you out with this one. They have done this type of thing time and time again and know what to expect.

If your budget is tight and you are stuck doing it yourself...ouch. You might consider loading the new server as a backup domain controller. Move the applications over one at a time. If issues arise you can always go back to the old server. Once everything is moved over you can promote the new server to the primary domain controller. Now you are free to decomission the old server. or reload it as your workstation Happy
