On old server:
*) run with current site until migration
*) migrate weo data to new server

On new server:
*) Change OS to Debian/Ubuntu
*) Do any upgrades to PHP/MySQL necessary to support Drupal 6
*) Install Drupal 6
*) Develop templates for new site
*) Test
*) Extract content/user data off old server, transform to Drupal 6  
where necessary and load to new server
*) Do final test
*) Launch new site

Later (but not *too* much later), and non-dependently: migrate non-weo  
stuff to new server and decommission old one.

There's probably an interim ETL step for testing, and the final  
migration will - necessarily - need to be fairly quick.
