rewiring an old home

I have just inherited an old home. It's been abandoned for a few years and the cellar is damp and the electrical panel rusty. The power has been shut off and the meter removed. So I'll have to replace the panel, and while I'm at it, will move it upstairs. So my question: how big a job is this? I'm wondering if I can do part of this by myself or do I have to get a licensed electrician to do it all, that is, install a new panel upstairs, reconnect all the ciurcuits and then reconnect the panel to the power line? (maybe this last task the power company looks after).
Any suggestions appreciated.

If you are asking questions like this, then call an electrician. This is no job for a novice.

in my opion you need to better research this Idea a little better before you try to do any of this.
your local homecenter will have some really good books on how to wire your house. My advice get them and read them over and over
