SQL 2005 Workgroup Edition - how to run a trace

I need to run a trace on a SQL 2005 Workgroup Edition. Profiler is only
available in Standard and Enterprise?
SQL 2005 BOL refers to serveral SPs and functions for tracing but I don't
have those in my workgroup edition.
Any other options? Can I connect a SQL 2000 Profiler to 2005?

Thanks.

No, you cannot connect with Profiler 2000 to any edition of SQL 2005.

I'm a little mystified when you say that you don't have the procedures
and functions for tracing on your Workgroup Edition. I don't have any
access to any instance of Workgroup Edition, but I have an instance of
SQL Express, and this seems to work:

declare @d int
exec sp_trace_create @d OUTPUT, 1
select @d

Further more, it returns 2 when I run it, which indicates that the
default trace is running.
