Ok,

i have read the white papers and used the search, there is one thing i can't figure out.

In wich order do i migrate from 5.5 -> 2003
if not what is the best way?

i have the following servers

1: IMC
2: 5.5 OWA Server
3: 5.5 Mailbox Server

in wich order do i migrate the above to 2003?and is there a guide for each individual server? (i know how to migrate the back end server)

You can probably decomission server 1 and roll it into the OWA which will become the FE.
See this: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;829057
You'll ideally need to upgrade both at the same time or alternatively jiggle with the firewall rules to point OWA at the mailbox until you upgrade them. Since the Exchange would be unavailable and you aleady have a de facto FE/BE mix I'd do both together.
