Default SBS 2008 x64 BES install

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, I have lurked for a couple years now looking up questions I had, now I have one that I can't seem to locate a specific answer for :

SBS 2008 Server with Exchange 2007 ( 64 bit machine )
SBS 2003 Server - BES 4.1 installed

SBS 2003 Server has been our office server for about 5 years now. January of 2008 I installed BES 4.1 and had it configured correctly to provide service to 2 Blackberry phones.

Purchased SBS 2008 server, migrated user mailboxes to Exchange 2007.

I have read that you can't install BES on the Exchange 2007 Server because it's 64 bit - I get that part of it. I can't find any DETAILED instructions anywhere on how to set this up so that I can keep my SBS 2003 server online as the BES server since the software was working perfectly prior to my move to the new server. Everywhere I look I only find instructions for setting up a different configuration. I know someone has done this before.

I need to know exactly how to accomplish this.

My 2003 machine has been demoted so it's no longer a primary domain controller. The 2008 machine has Exchange 2007 installed and working perfectly - send / receive emails both internally and externally. I disabled all Exchange services on the 2003 machine as well.

I am just really confused and hope someone out there can help.

Many thanks in advance.
