Replacing Windows 2000 server with a Win 7 Pro Workstation & copying user profiles

I have a mixture of Windows XP & Windows 7 Professional
pc's that are currently joined to a Windows 2000 domain.
Approx 9 pc's. I want to get rid of the server & replace it with a
Windows 7 Professional pc which will be the new server.

i want to copy the user profiles over with as little hassle as possible. Any advise?

i'm looking at just setting up a workgroup.
the WIn 7 Pro workgroup server will simply share files & printers.
Most of their data is cloud based now so there is no need for an expensive server anymore.
The router will allocate ip addresses.
There is not much security currently - no  real policies setup.
