    Build and configure the new server and then add it to the domain. promote the new server to be a DC and wait for replication. Once all AD data has repicated copy across any other information from the old server i.e. DHCP database, files etc

    Once all data has been copied across transfere the FSMO roles from the old to the new server:

    DCpromo the old server to remove AD and live happily ever after...
