You want to collapse 40 domains...big job.  You need to start looking into the ADMT tool and guide from Microsoft

Do you have money for a third party migration tool/consulting hours?  If you do you can look at Quest  there are also other third party products...again definitely not free.

You will also want to build a decent test lab and test test test.  Pay attention to applications as they are often the toughest part of a migration.

Remember this is a long term project; don't expect to collapse 40 domains in a few months.
