How can we migrate to a new AD forest without losing user accounts and passwords?

We are trying to migrate an Active Directory server forest to another forest and then assimilate the first server as an additional server on the second forest. However, we want to migrate the user accounts with the passwords without having to recreate all the new passwords. Any suggestions?
There is a product called Ideal Migration that may help you in this regard. It allows you to migrate user accounts, including passwords, across domains.
