I need to join a couple computers to an SBS domain. Last time I tried this the user's settings were not imported.

Is there any way to ensure that all the user's existing docs/settings are maintained when joining the domain using the wizard?

Run the wizard.
From the client computer type the following in the browser:
http://SBSserver/connectcomputer
Then chose the profile you want to use.

hmm, SBS states that it cannot migrate user settings that are private. However, I look in sharing and security properties for this user and the user settings are not private.

You can set up roaming profiles to this easily. However i'd suggest not to keep using them.
If it's only a couple of computers you can use the "Files and Setting transfer wizard at thelocal machine.
The use of roaming profiles is explained here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/solutionaccelerators/smbiz/sitsol/SBServcs_15.mspx?mfr=true
Hope that helps
