Replacing Windows Web Server 2003

Specs: Windows Server 2003
I have a network with 4 servers (web, mail, misc.) and 6 workstations. I would like to replace/upgrade our old web server with a new machine, both running Windows Server 2003. I've transferred all the websites and DNS records to the new server. Have IIS installed, but I'm at a complete loss as to how I go about making the new server active?

I've tried using the TCP/IP settings from the old server, but that does no good. Do I need to edit anything in the router? Does it matter that the new server has a different name? I'm at a complete loss as what to do.

I've got PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin installed and they all run fine when I check http://localhost/ but can't see anything outside the intranet.

How do I tell the network that the new machine is the web server?

Does anybody have a guide with detailed steps of what I need to do to swap out a Windows Server 2003?

I've Googled for days and can't find anything about setting up a server on a network.

Thanks a bunch.
