If you are planning to run the two domains in parallel, try the Active Directory Migration tool. Fomr what I remember of using it in the past, you'll need to set up a trust relationship between the domains and create certain user accounts to facilitate the migration.

You can get it from here:

Or if the two domain scenario is not an option, you can use LDIF.

You can also run the windows backup tool. Quite fast and easy.
