I have a client who wants to replace their old sbs 2003 server with a sbs 2011 server, they use the companyweb alot and use the calendar for the company diary. What is the best way for me to get this from the 2003 sbs to the 2011?

Im looking to do a clean install of 2011 on the new server there are only 4 client machines so ill be backing up email to PST files and backing up docs but the main thing i need to get off the server is the companyweb, calendar.

what is the best way forward?

TIA

Easiest way would be to use a migration tool like the one from Metalogix - I specifically name that one because we are using it to migrate a massive site from our 03 farm into our 2010 farm.
They should have a trial version available for download

What version of SharePoint is there currently and what version will you be going to?  Likely the cheapest way will be backing up the current content database and restoring to the new server, then attaching the restored database to a web application on the new server.

my knowledge of sharepoint workings and even sql is limited I would need a bit of hand holding to acheive this I think..?

I have managed to get a calendar backup by connecting outlook to the sharepoint calendar on the sbs 2003 system so that solves one part, but i cant import from outlook to sharepoint calendar as the sharepoint part is read only..

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Well if you literally only want the calendar items,  you could open both calendars up in Outlook and copy them over as shown in this walk through.

You'll need at least contribute permissions on the destination list.

there are several years entries in the sharepoint calendar is there a way to do this for all entries instead of 1 by 1?

Yes, migrate the entire site by doing the database backup/restore.  Once you are in SharePoint Foundation (2010) you can easily move the list to another site if you wish using the export-spweb and import-spweb commands.
