I need to migrate a customer from SBS2003 to Standard 2003  and running exchange 2003.

I need preferably to migrate the users, exchange users and profiles without recreating them on a new domain or the same domain.. If that is not possible, suggestion on how and a white paper of some sort. for the situation I'm encountering.

As Jay_Jay mentioned, you want the transition pack.  It should be priced to make up for the discounts Microsoft gave for purchasing Small Business Server, but otherwise, adding the transition pack licensing cost to the small businessness licensing cost should NOT exceed the cost if you had never purchasing SBS and instead went with non-SBS versions.

You'll find the how-to for the Transition Pack here:  http://sbsurl.com/transition

This is required for proper licensing of breaking the roles out of SBS.

OK if you can suggest me how i will take a whole image of small business server into anather server. if my doamin crash or fail or some thing happend to my domain i just have to take backup machine and restore my application and exchange data into it. if i make a machine exact the same hardawre configauration and take image and ghost it. tell me this will work. then i will install exchange on the same machine.

No, you can't use Ghost, but you can use Symantec LiveState Restore, or Acronis TrueImage and the like.
