Upgrade from 2000 Server Std to SBS2003

I am in the process of doing a migration project that will take an existing 2000 Server Std to SBS2003. Is this really as simple as just putting the first disk of the set into the system and starting an upgrade? I have searched through mountains of knowledgbase articles and most of these seem to talk about migrating hardware as well. Any help or guidance in the right direction would be appreciated.

    Yes, I have been through that doc. Actually I got the answer it just so happens that the software that was ordered was an OEM copy and not an Upgrade or Retail version. Thanks for the info however!
