Migrating from Citirx 4.5 to 6.5

In the next 4-6 months we will be migrating about 1200 users from a Windows 2003/Citrix 4.5 environment or from a XP workgroup environment to Windows 2008 / Citrix 6.5 environment.  

We use mdaemon mail server instead of exchange.

Since there is no direct migration from Windows 2003 (or XP) to Windows 2008, we know we will have to build 1200 new roaming profiles.  Are there scripts which can facilitate building 100 new profiles?

We are gathering the user’s passwords.  Is there a script to bulk test user passwords?

I am looking for tips or tricks to make the migration easier.

Why do you want to save passwords?
You can just add 2008 DCs after adprep etc and remove 2003 DCs.

Also fyi the profile structure is different between 2003 and 2008. so make sure you need to maintain 2 different profile structure for citrix.
