company merger, sbs 2003 and sbs 2011

Hello, I have a client that has purchased a business. End result I have 2 SBS servers. I need to merge the SBS 2003 into the SBS 2011.  I would like to minimize down time. What is the process.... sbs 2003 (10 users); sbs 2011 (4 users) I know it is kind of backwards. But it seems to make sense to move to the sbs 2011.

do the two ADs need to keep their existing name, users, application and resources, and the two groups of users will be working together under a bigger umbrella? or only the SBS 2011 environment is to be kept and everything from the 2003 AD will be removed and transferred into the 2011 AD?

Everything has to be transferred to the SBS 2011 machine.. as mentioned before SBS does not support trusts .. if you want the tools the big boys use then you have to pay the big boys price.
