You can move users between domains in this way - you will need to use the ADMT to move the users

To move users between domains tou have to use the Active Directory Migration tool - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6f86937b-533a-466d-a8e8-aff85ad3d212&displaylang=en

or use the MoveTree utility - actually MoveTree is probably easier - see

I'd still recommend ADMT - MS has deprecated MOVETREE for 2K3 Active Directory in favour of ADMT, so the latter is a more supportable method if you run into any issues with the process - MOVETREE in 2K3 should be reserved for only those object types that ADMT can't migrate such as contacts.
