Suggestions on migrating NT4 data to Windows 2003 server

I am looking for some suggestions for migrating 150GB of data to new 2003 File server.
AD is being implemented and I need to begin migrating data to new server.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Any really good suggestions from the experts ?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the old and new machines are in the same domain then you can use the ROBOCOPY.EXE tool from the resource kit to copy security permissions across.

Also, most backup tools will get security too and can be used to restore the data - NTBACKUP.EXE

If the machines are on different domains then you will need to repermission the data - let me know and i'll tell you how to do it.
