Eerie, we're migrating off of a single exchange/pdc machine right now
because the thought of a big crash is so scary :)

Thus far we've been trying to move Exchange to a new system, then bring
the old PDC down, the samba PDC up, and log in with the Exchange system.
It looks like I need to try bringing the old PDC down, bringing the new
PDC up, then doing the Exchange install/move.  Thanks very much for the
help, this is definitely something new to try.

Do you remember anything about the commandline commands you used or
anything specific about the mailbox problems you ran into?
