You would need to perform a domain migration.  Check out the ADMT utility...  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6f86937b-533a-466d-a8e8-aff85ad3d212&DisplayLang=en

Currently, there is no way to merge two forests into one.

you can either migrate one into the other, or start with a fresh one, which would be preferable, and migrate both existing domains into it.

NJComputerNetworks mentioned the ADMT, which is necessary. A trust relationship between the source and destination domain is necessary to migrate the users, groups and othere resources.

Also see this link, it is the migration cookbook, for 2000, but mostly still relevant.

Good Luck,
