I upgraded from 2003 to 2008 sbs and it went seamless. I didn't have to worry about rejoining desktops they automatically carried over.

The migrating process will move your entire active directory structure including PC's and user accounts,. It also migrates Exchange, Sharepoint, group policy and much more.
Though the Microsoft documentation will work, I recommend purchasing a swing Migration kit from http://www.sbsmigration.com/pages/171/pages/13/  which allows you to do  the migration more systematically, over a longer period of time, and always have the option to test your work so far, and move back to previous steps.
