Windows 2003 STD DC

mustangsa
We got new Hardware; I need to transfer the current DC to the new hardware.
I am from the Nt4 environment, excuse Terms

We have been running for years with current only DC Windows 2003 STD , Old normal pedestal server , now we migrating to proper Rack Mount servers, Intel 2500 Series (2U) , Intel 1500 Series (1U)
I want to setup the Intel 1500 Series as DC and then the Intel 2500 Series as Backup DC
I have both rack mount servers installed fresh copy of
1500 Series with Windows 2003
2x 2500 Series with Windows 2003 Enterprise
Problem 1
I want to add the new 1500 as a backup DC , demote the current DC and then make my new 1500 as the primary DC (PDC) , then remove the old dc, and then promote new dc as primary
The 2500 Series I want to add as the backup DC (BDC)
Second Problem
Then new 2500 Series can take 5 drive , I got 12 x 1.5TB Drives , but **** I can only get 3 to work , cannot get the other 2 drive to work , I want to run hardware raid
Add-on
I want to add shares but the 2 2500 series servers must replicate between each other, I think the new term is called FDC or cluster , some advised me to go for the FDC between the systems, replicating the data between the 2 servers

I have installed the Windows with Intel System management software,
Can you help me with step by step what i need to do to transfer the domain "detail"
And how do I get the 2u servers to see drive 5 and 6

Please I need help!!!
