server 2008 64 bit - install 1st go

Well so far so good, my first server 2008 install has gone without a hitch.
Platform install was aroun 30mins, server roles 15mins, Active directory including all the AD prep stuff on the current DC took about 20 mins.

Now installing Exchange 2007 (+ SP2 for Exchange 2003 on my old mail server first), so far its taken 45 mins and looks like it will be another 15mins or so.

Its been awhile since I have installed a mail server and had no time for a dozen cups of coffee, fingers crossed when I move the mailboxes over (with the inbuilt 'move mailboxes' tool it'll all go as well...
