If you're doing a migration from 2003 to 2008 then clearly an upgrade is the best way to go.  

If, for other reasons, you really only want the user details, then a number of options are available.  I'd suggest csvde.  There are some ideas on the below link:

I'm not doing a migration as it fails time and again. I have a new server and need to just copy the user info and settings over to the new server.

Take a look at at ADMT

or the script in the GPMC
http://wmug.co.uk/blogs/1972/archive/2006/05/01/39.aspx

Create an XML representation of a policy environment
 CreateXMLFromEnvironment.wsf
 Reads an existing policy environment and creates an XML file representing that environment. The XML file captures information about organizational units, GPOs, and GPO links, and security on GPOs. You can use this script in conjunction with the CreateEnvironmentFromXML.wsf script to create a replica of a domain for staging purposes.
 

Create a policy environment using an XML representation
 CreateEnvironmentFromXML.wsf
 Reads an XML file that specifies a policy environment; for example, organizational units, GPOs, links, and security groups. The script can either create the environment in a domain by creating the objects, or delete the environment by deleting objects specified in the XML file.
