Migrate SBS 2003 to new Enterprise 2003 server

We have an SBS 2003 server that we are replacing with a new Enterprise 2003 server.  I'm looking for clearcut way to migrate users, mailboxes and data to the new server.  I recently did a migration for a customer that was SBS 200 to SBS 2003 described here http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/sbs/2003/deploy/sbs2k203.mspx
Can I use the same method for the migration from SBS to Enterprise?

Hi cjewett,

Yes, it really does not matter if your OS is Standard or Enterprise. Did you consider using Transition pack?

If you are going to new hardware then simply swing it.

Looks like the swing only takes care of the Exchange portion.  What about Active Directory.  Will the Active Directory Migration Tool work?  I want to avoid having to rejoin all the machines to a new domain.

Just add the machine to the domain and then DCPROMO it.
However Exchange on a domain controller is not recommended. If you have paid for Enterprise Edition of Exchange then you must have the budget for a dedicated Exchange server.
