apparently, there is a procedure called sp_estspace and there is a microsoft version of it called estspace.sql which guides one through size estimation for a new database. could someone happen to know as to how to get it??

Not in MS SQL 6.5. Are you talking about 7.0 ?

There is no such sql-file I know of. Never heard of it though.
But there is a good article in the SQL Server Ressource Guide
about Estimating Database Sizes.
(Head to support.mircosoft.com and search for
 "estimating database size sql")
