      Planning is the Key
      Do you have existing domains? If so how many, will they eventually join the new domain, or stay separate.
      DNS you have to master DNS Plan the DNS name e.g.
      Trees and Forests.
      Will it be a new Forest, or a new Tree inan existing forest?
      The server will if its the only one then it will have to be a Domain controller. (After install run DCPROMO or use the wizard.
      Its recommend to run exchange on a member server rather than a Domain Controller, so consider havingtwo or three machines. Its also recommended having more than one Domain controller, because if you lose the only primary, its start from the beginning.
      The actual installation of Exchange will be the easiest part, they are both Microsoft, and knoweach other as it were, and you already have an existing Exchange server with all the data that will be transfered when you install then new Exchange server.
