Migrating Dynamics GP to a new SQL Server

Edit 6/8/2010:
Just ran this on a GP2010 install, worked fine... but I had to reset the passwords in Dynamics when done. I wonder if that was related to the ODBC connection?

 Last week I added Microsoft's instructions for migrating Dynamics GP to a new server. In going through that text I had an issue and contacted support, here is the text of that conversation. It was very helpful.

My client wants to migrate from MSDE (8.0) to SQL Server 2005. Both instances are on the same box. I am fully backed up, and have transferred the databases from one SQL to the other. I the past I would run my handy 'migrate users' scripts and everything would be fine. 

Apparently 2005 does not allow this technique. Can you help?
