Microsoft has an Active Directory Migration Tool. (ADMT)

Here are a couple of links that I would suggest you read through before attempting the upgrade...

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/planning/default.asp

The Active Directory Migration Tool is the top link from this page...

I have also read about some third party migration tools, however I am unable to find the information on them at this time.

good luck...

mrcool will you have any NT4 servers on your 2000 network ?
-ADMT is a great tool but is only supported in 2000 native mode & not compatability mode..

-A great way to do it also is to add some clone box as a BDC to your NT4 domain.. Disconnect it from the NT4 network & promote it to a PDC. Upgrade to a 2000 DC.. Install your new server & join the 2000 DC having installed DNS (you can have several primary dns servers for the same zone).. Move all 5 FSMO roles to the new DC with ADU&C & ADS&S. Kill the temporary first DC...Remove the DC objects from AD on the new DC refering to the old DC...
-Obviously this would take approximatly 2-3 hrs longer to do but is the only work-around for pre-2000 compatable 2000 domains.
