We are looking at moving away from SBS2003 next year, I understand that there is a way of migrating from SBS2003 to regular windows 2003 domain.

Has anyone done this and how successful was it?

Where can I get the information about how to do this?

You really should look into the Transition Pack - this removes the SBS restrictions and "evens out" the cost.  (When you bought SBS, you effectively got a HUGE discount on Microsoft Products.  The transition pack costs essentially make you pay the amount of the discount so it really doesn't cost any more than if you originally bought the standard (non-SBS) products).
