I have two Active Directory forests and would like to merge them together. They work under Windows 2003. Is it possible to migrate directly to Windows 2008? Also I would like to know if a migration to forest infrastructure W2008 would be easier than migrating to an infrastructure W2003.

You can migrate them into a single new 2008 AD forest or upgrade one of your existing forests to 2008 and migrate users from the other. Take a look at the ADTM, lots of good documentation with it.
