Merge two SBS domains

We are considering purchasing a company, and will need to add the existing domain. We are currently running SBS 2003 at the existing location; the new company is also running server 2003. I realize that you cannot have a trust between two sbs 2003 domains.
We are considering buying a new server at the main office and installing 2008 enterprise Edition.
What woud be the best process for adding the new domain

I'd upgrade the existing server to 2008, then the other one, then join the other one using trusts.

The tricky bit, at least in my mind, being actually doing the upgrade to '08 from SBS '03 and keeping your domain.  A few more details on the ways you can go about tha process, over here:
