Migrate SBS 2003 to Windows 2003

We have a client who has sbs2003 and is running out of licenses.  They are at fifty and we never thought they would be this high.  We have decided to move them out of SBS to Windows 2003 and Exchange 2007.  Can you migrate?  Can we save the domain information?  What is the best way to do this?  Thanks,

Brad

Who makes the transition pack?  I didn't mention that the server is also out of room and needs new hard drives or more space.  In addition they want to now host twenty - thirty users with Blackberry Enteprise Server.

Dont think theres any other way of getting to Exchange 2007 other than migrating the SBS to 2003 and migrating to Exchange 2003 then migrate onto exchange 2007 mind having said that heres an interesting link to look at.

Dont forget EX2007 Production requires 64bit though.
This could be an interesting thread
Who makes it?  Microsoft.

The server's out of space?  Fine, buy a new server - add it to their network.  You can have more than one server in an SBS domain - you can have more than one DC in an SBS domain...
Why the C grade?  What more could I have said?
Sorry I really wasn't paying attention.
