Moving clinets in AD from 2000SBS to a 2003SBS server

I have an upgrade this weekend on a site that currently has an SBS2000 server and a 2003 Server running as a TS server.  The 2000SBS server will off the network by the end of the weekend, and the TS server will become the new SBS2003 server.  i then have a brand new server that will be the new TS server.
I have no problem dealing with Exchnage from 2000 - 2003 but what I'm not sure how to get over is moving the Active directory users from the 2000SBS to the 2003SBS.  Can anyone recommend a way to do this.  All the PCS on the network are also going to be replaced so I don't care about computer accounts in AD.

Thanks

The following white paper should walk you through the steps of migrating from a 2000SBS to a 2003SBS server: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=fa187d1e-8218-4501-9729-222bd8ebb64c&DisplayLang=en, including steps to take prior to the migration as well as preparing the source and destination servers.

Hope this helps.

hmm, make sure that you back up the TS license server database as well or have the paper licenses to reinstall them. of course the white paper should help you do the trick on AD.
