Hello,

If we are running Windows 2000 server as domain controller, and we want to replace this old box with SBS 2003 running on a new server, can we do so without starting from scratch, eg: pumping in all the user accounts into SBS, new domain name etc?

Any advice on this topic would be appreciated.  I have found many references of people going from sbs 2000 to 2003, but not plan server 2000 to sbs 2003.

Not sure what references you are referring to, but the official Microsoft migration paper is titled:
"Migrating from Small Business Server 2000 or Windows 2000 Server to Windows Small Business Server 2003"

You'll find that at http://sbsurl.com/migrate
