Thanks for joining in Wolf.  One part of this puzzle seems a bit simpler after
some work this evening.  I've got Drupal v5 running on the new server.  
So first I will look at migrating off of our old server, then the other items
can take place without the pressure of also moving at the same time :)

Thanks Milo and Frank too.  Just to be clear, I'm not really looking for 
"help" but inviting someone to run the website.  Somehow I ended up being 
Drupal admin but with my job ending in 9 days I can't commit to that

More to come...
