you just need to maintain the same domain SID (and name of course0
rpcclient's lsaquery command on the old installation to determine this 

then use net setlocalsid with that value on the new installation.

Be aware that the ldap schema has changed so you'll have to migrate your
data (or i'm told there are some compatibility ldap options - google if
you want that)

it's pretty painless really - there are scripts to do the ldap upgrade.

best wishes!
