How would you add an SBS 2003 server to an NT4 domain where the NT4 server has died

How would you handle this:
Nt4 domain whose NT4 server died after a long life. 20 users / 20 desktops. Moving to SBS 2003.
Would you revive the NT4 server / get the domain working and replace the NT4 DC with the SBS 2003 server (is this what they call a swing migration?)
Or just start from scratch - enter users and computers in the SBS machine, disconnect each PC from the old domain to a workgroup then rejoin to sbs with connectcomputer?
there's 1 group that has permissions to 1 share (accounting data) so there's not much of that that would need to be recreated.
I think the 2nd way is better - start from scratch get rid of all the clutter from the domain.
