Best practice for a File & Print Server Consolidation/Migration to a Windows Server 2003 R2 Cluster

I am looking for best practices to migrate two Windows 2000 / 2003 file & print servers to a Windows Server 2003 R2 cluster.

The goal handed to us is to retain the usage of all network shortcuts and UNC pathing. We plan to move the old server names and IP addresses to the cluster in order to do this.

Tools investigated so far:

Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit
Print Migrator Tool

We have added evaluting a the tool from http://www.superflexible.com
called Super Flexible File Synchronizer.

In addition to basically what robocopy does, it says that it can copy locked files on Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008 using VSS and handle partial updating of large files (delta copying).

Has anyone used this tool?
