upgrade small business server 2003 to 2011 SBS

I run a SBS 2003 at home, runs as a file server, print server does DNS and DHCP. No Exchange. Has 5 domain users and 2 printers.
I'd like to upgrade to SBS 2011. I would reformat and install new but I'm trying to save me some time if appicable. Any suggestions or good simple links to steps invloved would be appricated

I always personally prefer a wipe and fresh rebuild, it looks ok but usually when you iron out all the little issues with the migration you are usually quicker with a frsh install. Have a look at this link and best of luck
I should advice to backup all te data and install the server and restore your data back to the server.
You should manaly recreate the user accounts en the printers.
