if you find the print migrator doesn't work for you and you intend to install 2003 on the new hardware as well, you can sysprep the server and include the raid controller of the new server in the sysprep config.  then image it (with ghost or something) and drop that image on the new server.  once the server boots you can add the rest of the appropriate drivers for that hardware.  if you want more details let me know.
