I have been doing the same a few days ago. Although I ran into problems when 
replicating the public folder store. On the end, I exported the public folders 
using Outlook to a PST file and imported into the new server.
The moving of the user mailboxes is a piece of cake. And a tip: When users now 
have a connection to their mailbox on server A and you move their mailbox to 
server B, keep Exchange on A running for a while, because, when a user make a 
connection, his outlook will want to talk to A, but A tells them to connect to 
B. If A is no longer active, users would report errors trying to connect.
An article which is of very good use:

Goodluck !!!
Oh and do create a backup and try to test in a test-environment...... .(VMWare 
is great for this)

Hello all. 
I have an Exchange Server 2000Sp3 Setup on Win2k Advanced Server  this is ADC 
as well as the e-mail server. 
I want to move exchange2000 to a seperate box. We have been having some funky 
problems with our current server. 
We have 50 users setup and I dont want to start from scratch with a new domain 
blah blah.
What would be the best way to go about migrating this to a new box preserving 
our current domain and all the users as well as our mail server.
For the future is it better to have exchange on a seperate box than our ADC? 
and how would I set that up.
thanks for your time
