replacing sbs 2003 with sbs 2008

I need to replace our old sbs 2003 with a new sbs 2008.
Our old sbs 2003 has only 5 users which use roaming profiles with exchange 5 mailboxes.
I also need to change the domain name. Actually i dont't really need to but if it is not to difficult then it is something we would like to do.
What would be the quickest and safest way to do that?

For a 5-user SBS, I would do a fresh, clean installation of the SBS 2008 onto the new hardware, then migrate users, data and computers across. You can use Outlook's File > Import/Export feature to export email to PST files for each user, then re-import it on the new server using the same approach.

There is a path to upgrade the existing network from SBS 2003 to 2008 (will still require new hardware), but for the number of users, a clean installation would be much more worthwhile (and in some respects, much simpler). http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc546034.aspx
