Mount an MDF file as a database.

I had a SQL 7 server that stopped working for some reason - i.e the service wouldn't start(probably due to something else I installed). After uninstalling and reinstalling the service now starts. How do I tell SQL 7 to look at the old mdf files as databases?

look at sp_attachdb


exec sp_attach_db 'DBNAME', N'c:\DB.mdf'

Its been awhile since I've used it but I believe that is the proper implementation. The stored proc can be found in the master database.
