Migrating from Server 2000 to SBS Server 2003

We currently have two domains, one hosted by Windows 2000 Server (our primary server) and another hosted by SBS 2003 (same users, no replication with Server 2K, hosting our e-mail only). The SBS 2003 server currently has an AD tree with the same users as our old 2K server AD.

I want to detach the workstations from the old Win 2K domain, and reattach them to the SBS 2003 domain. Their current user settings and profiles need to be retained as well. We also need to keep the current AD on SBS 2003 server as well because of the Exchange e-mail attributes.

Is there any way to "merge" the profiles on the SBS 2003 server with the ones coming over from our old 2000 server?  Basically I just need desktops etc. to look the same as before.

Will this "interfere" with the Active Directory on our SBS 2003 server? I need to maintain that directory because of the e-mail attributes etc..

Answered my own question regarding maintaining AD attributes on target server - I was able to merge attributes and all is working well.
