Transfer logins from one MSSQL Server to another

I have two different servers. I need to transfer the logins from one server to another. The logins on the first server are being used by a database on that server and I need to make those logins available to a database with a different name on the second server. Any thoughts?

insert sp_helpuser into a temporary table

then

generate sp_grantlogin
and sp_grantdbaccess
statements from the temporary table

then paste and run them in query analyser on the second server...
