Have you had a look at the Active Directory Migration Tool - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6f86937b-533a-466d-a8e8-aff85ad3d212&DisplayLang=en

Re: upgrade NT server

You could also:

Install the new server as NT4 BDC.

Wait for replication to finish.

Remove from the network and promote to PDC.

Ensure that everything works correctly and upgrade to 2003.
