Considerations for migrating from Exchange 5.5 to 2000

We have tried to upgrade an Exchange 5.5 server to Exchange 2000 twice, running into trouble both times. This time we will try installing a fresh Exchange 2000 and migrate all settings from Exchange 5.5. Are there any special considerations we should keep in mind? Also, do you have any type of checklist for stuff like username shares and such?
