  I have a SharePoint server 2010 single server deployment with SQL.  I want to move it to another domain and set it up as a SharePoint 2010 farm deployment (2 servers: 1 web and application server and 1 database server).  I want to be able to preserve all the content so that users should see all the previous content as it was.

    If SharePoint wasn't deployed as a farm initially, you can't go directly to a farm.  You will have to create a new farm, create your web apps, and attach your content db's.

    Thanks Jrhelqeson... it was helpful..however i found out that it was not worth moving the site to the new domain as its all over the place.  it was sandbox installation and somebody decided to put that into production.  There is so much of mess to deal with that its better off to start with a clean installation and carefully regulate permission and access to resource which will be benificial on the long run.. I dont want to spend time correcting the errors and mistakes. Thanks a lot guys for your advise and help...
