Ok, we have 2 win 2000 server domain controllers.  We need to install win 2003 small business server.  Unfortunately, it can be the only domain controller on the network.  How do I demote the other win 2000 servers to be member servers?  Also how do I migrate the info from one of the domain controllers to the new 2003 small business server domain controller?

Wow I do not know how you can do this. With SBS it must be the only DC on the domain. I think you will have to build from scratch.
