We currently have Server 2000 SP4 and will be purchasing a new SBS 2008 box. What is the easiest way to migrate all the domain information over? Is their a wizards for this, and is it even possible being server 2000?

If it's just Windows 2000 standard, then you can join the SBS server to the exsiting Windows 2000 domain as part of the installation wizard for SBS.

Then you transfer the FSMO roles to the new SBS Server: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324801 (if it doesn't take them automatically) and demote your 2000 server.

Yes I have the disc. Are you suggesting upgrading from Exchange 2000 -> 2003, then to Exchange 07?

I have never done a migration from Windows 2000/Exchange 2000 to SBS 2008 so I cannot confirm the process.

However an inplace upgrade from Exchange 2000 to 20003 is fairly straight forward, you can then do an inplace upgrade from windows 2000 to Windows 2003 as per: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Upgrade_Exchange_2000_to_2003.html

This will leave you with a Windows 2003/Exchange 2003 environment which I definately know can be upgraded to SBS2008
