How do I migrate a SBS2003 server to SBS2003 R2 on a new server and also a different domain name as the company name has changed

I need some help in migrating a SBS2003 server to new hardware using SBS2003 R2 whilst at the same time changing the name of the domain. There are only 10 users so I am happy to put all emails into a PST and start the users off with a new mailbox on the new domain. However they have alot of public folders. How would I be best migrating these. Also what would be the best way to migrate the users profile settings. For the printers I was going to use microsoft printmig 3 tool which works quite well.

You can easily migrate this domain using the steps outlined in this paper:  http://sbsurl.com/migrate

Even though it's SBS2003 to SBS2003 R2, the steps are basically the same.

If you want to just do it manually, you can use EXMerge for the mailboxes (http://sbsurl.com/exmerge) and pfmigrate for the Public Folders (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822895).

User profiles would be handled with ADMT as described in the migration paper above.
