Could you be a bit more specific... Are you wanting to move it to a NEW Computer (Hardware) or move to a NEW Server OS like Windows Server 2003 R2?

new hardware. basically moving from a dual mp2600+ platform to a dual opteron platform, and i'd like to keep everything as it is in the existing installation.

Use the "Swing IT" kit from SBSMigration.com - it cost $200 but it's worth it.

You get all your bit's and pieces back in - no changes on the client machines and the server has the response and speed of a fresh install.

Or you can look in endless KB articles e.t.c. but  you can spend hours putting it all together
