I have an Exchange Server site running now.  I want to replace the
server with a new one but with very little down time.  I started
installing exchange 5.5 on the new server and it asks if I want to join
an existing site or create a new one.  Can I join the existing site, if
so what happens when you do so, does it take all of the user's mail
boxes, and transfers them to the new server or does the new server act
as a backup.  What will happen when I take the primary server offline,
does the new server take over.

Any help or guidance appreciated, I aml trying to limit the suprises.
