Replacing a Terminal Server

I have a small network with two DCs. One is used as a file server, the other primarily as a Terminal Server. I need to replace the Terminal Server as it has been acting up after years of good service. I was hoping to just transfer the drives into a new box and just carry on after updating the necessary drivers. What will I be up against? I have done this successfully on numerous occasions with Win2K workstations but have yet to do this with a server.
If the system is failing, just swapping the drives to a new box won't solve the problem. I'd recommend creating the new system from scratch, upgrade it to a DC, install TS, then move data as needed. The old drives would slow it down anyway.
