Migrating a Windows 2003 vm Server to a Windows 2008 vm Server

I am running a Windows 2003 vm server in a VMware 5.0 cluster
I have just set up a new Windows 2008 server that I want to migrate the 2003 to.
Currently this is just a file sharing server that has a lot of different shares and
I am trying to find the best way to copy this data and keep all the current shares and permissions?

Thanks

Are the DFS shares on a different disk to the OS, you could just add the disk to the 2008 VM!
