Can the migration of users from a 2000 domain to a new 2003 domain be automated?

My company is preparing to roll out a new global AD.  Users will be migrating from various NT and 2000 domains to this new single domain. Profiles currently reside on the client machine.

Today we 1) join the client to the new domain, 2) login as the new user (all accounts are being renamed to a new standard), 2) log back in as the administrator and copy data from the old user profile to the new user profile.

Some of the users have a large amount of data on their machines and manually moving this data to the new profile can take some time.  

Is there a process or utility that would allow us to speed up this process?  Ideally, we would like to take advantage of the old user profile so that we do not have to copy data or reconfigure email clients.

We have looked at ADMT, but it only appears to migrate the accounts on the server.  I am looking for a solution on the client...... once the user and computer accounts are on the new server, we are left with having to log on as the new user.  This creates a new directory structure under Documents and Settings.  To pull the users old data to the new profile, we are copying data between the old PC profile and the new.  

Am I wrong in my understanding that ADMT doeas not address profiles on a client?
