Migrating domains

The company I work for has multiple branches. Most of the branches are under one domain. However, the other branches are on a different domain. The two domains do not have a trust relationship. Both of the domains are Windows 2000 Native. Let?s call the domain with the most branches domain "A" and the branches on the other domain "B". The company wants to do the following: 1. Rename the "A" domain to a different domain called "C" for example. 2. Migrate the user and computer accounts from domain "B" to domain "C" I know that the domain name can be changed from "A" to "C" if the domain controllers are upgraded from 2000 to 2003. That takes care of task 1. I also know that Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT) can be used to move accounts from one domain to another. Question: Are there any best practices/tips in doing this? Any extra information/documentation you can provide would also be useful. Thanks for your time.
