  • I'd endorse this point of view but adapt it to the options within your company.  If you firm are also turning to you as thier perceived product specialist, than use this to make suggestions.

    As Scott mentions, are you upgrading the same kit, or retiring the boxes and moving to new ones.  Inplace upgrades, vs Detached databases vs Back-up & restore each have thier own issues and concerns. 

    From a database perspective, Database detachment would be the easiest for you to learn, which would be Romeo's link from above http://blogs.msdn.com/b/priyo/archive/2006/09/15/755490.aspx

  • I would not recommend an inplace OS upgrade.

    quite frankly, you'll want to perform a full farm upgrade. The effort for moving the farm from one server to another is only minimally less than upgrading to the next version (SP Foundation 2010), and the benefits will easily make the difference in effort very worthwhile.
