Migrating from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000 within the same domain

I am migrating from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000 within the same domain. I have installed Windows 2000 and Exchange 2000 on a new box. Do I have to establish a trust between NT4 and Exchange 2000? How do I move the mailboxes from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000?
