move/upgrade MSDE to SQL 2000

2 New Member
Need some help with moving/upgrading 3 MSDE databases (stored locally on 3 different servers) to a single SQL 2000 server (new instance). Can this be done? If so, how????

Thanks for any responses

Stop the MSSQL service. Find the MDF and LDF files (C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Da ta\ ) and copy them to the SQL Server. Then attach the databases on the destination. Watch not to overlay any MDF/LDF files on the destination server.

The How-To's state that if you can see it in Add/Remove...
