Add Server Std. 2008 to existing SBS Server 2003 domain

I was wondering what method to use to replace an SBS 2003 server domain with a 2008 Server Std.

I thought of making the new 2008 Server a DC on a brand new domain, but then I would have to take all 28 user computers, remove them from the existing SBS 2003 domain, and then add them back to to the new 2008 domain.
This would take time.

The other option I thought of was adding the new 2008 Server to the existing SBS Server 2003 network, let them replicate. make the 2008 server the FSMO for all 5 roles, and then demote tie SBS Server.
