Migrating User Profiles in Windows XP

I am getting ready to promote a Windows 2000 Server to a domain controller and have a number of users that connect to mapped drives on this server.  When I promote it I was wondering what the easiest way to get the user accounts with all of their Outlook settings, Favorites, My Documents, mapped drives etc to their new profile once the machine has joined the domain?  I know you can go into System Properties - User Profiles and Copy but I didn't know if this was the easiest way like it use to be or if there is a better way now in 2000 Professional and XP Professional?  Thanks.

ARE these local profile, on the personal systems, not the server?

I would use something like USMT, do the migration between windows 2000 and windows xp. It is a free download from microsoft.

Yes these are local profiles.  The machines are staying the same operating system and the same machine.  The only thing that is changing is I am changing the server to a domain controller.  When I join the clients their profiles change unless I do what was said early from Nzarth.
