What is the best way to do the migration from 2k Server running exchange to 2003 SBS?  I know about xMerg, but is their any other way to make the migration easier?  If my knowledge server me correctly, I know that you can't add a SBS machine to another domain, so I think I will have to start my domain all over again.  Any tips or suggestions would be greatly apprecieated.

Thanks in advance.

Indeed, that's the problem. I don't think there will be another way than using Exmerge. You cannot add the old Exchange server to the new domain, because all mailboxes are connected to specified users that have a specified SID in the old domain. There is no way to update a "normal" network to an SBS network..
