Moving profiles to a new server

I have a Windows 2000 server and all users have roaming profiles.
We are doing a new installation with Windows SBS 2003 on a new harddrive, using the same hardware.
This means I will not be able to have both systems running simultaniously.

The old drive containg the profiles will be accessible on the new system, but I assume just copying the profiles folder won't do me any good as all users will be created from scratch on the new server.

My current plan is to make a copy of the profiles locally on every users computer and then copy it to the new server once it is up, but I was hoping for a quicker solution.

Any suggestions?
