This is a poorly written information request. I realized that with some of the responses. I did specify a side-by-side scenario initially but botched from there. Even in my last response - did it again. I do try to be careful however this came up way too short. My apologies to everyone.

Very simply - I want to move SQL Server 2000 databases to a SQL Server 2008 (side by side).
Not only consolidate the servers to one but upgrade the environment. Some of the SQL 2000
instances are on Windows 2000 - there's no support for the OS.

Copy SQL Server 2000 backup to the SQL Server 2008 instance. That'll do it.

My apologies to everyone again.

no need to apologize and glad you got it figured out.

you've got the right solution. Move backups, restore.

Also, script out logins (sp_helprevlogin) and move those. Watch out for linked servers, replication, packages, things that might need to move from the instance level.
