I have a client with 50 users and they enjoy an SBS 2003 at the moment. Hardware is getting old and out of warranty, some parts may not be readily available or at all now. Looking at migrating to a new SBS 2008 server and migrate from SBS 2003 server.

Client also has plans to grow his business and could exceded the 75 user limit. This could happen in the next 6 months or 18 months (its hard to predict)

Is there a "Transition pack" that takes SBS 2008 to ebs 2008 or to full blown Server 2008? I can't seem to find an answer for 2008.

Also the Transition is it a simple procedure or are we looking at downtime? Also can we keep some of the features of SBS like RWW transitioning to regular Server 2008?
