upgrade from NT to WK3

i have a NT server which we use as a file server. I have another machine with Windows 2K3 + SP1. I have to migrate the data from NT to Windows 2K3. The NT server has many shared folders accessed by various groups.
Can anyone advise me on how can I move the files with the current permissions. also is there anyway to copy the groups from the NT box to the new one. Also how can I make the new server secure. I do not want everyone to acccess the folders.
Please advise and thanks in advance.
