I need to move or better yet copy Sharepoint farm sites from one WSS 3.0 to another 3.0. Specs are as follows.

Server 1
WSS 3.0
Windows Server 2003
SQL Server 2000


Server 2
WSS 3.0
Windows Server 2008
SQL Server 2005

I want to make a copy of the sites in Server 1 to Server 2 and remove Server 1 all together. I had a nightmare just upgrading Server 1 from 2.0 to 3.0, so I am trying to get the easiest approaches possible. Im nervous about the difference in OS and SQL versions. Would I have to upgrade Server 1 to SQL 2005? Any suggestions on the best way to approach this?
