Here is the answer,

SELECT  CAST(SO.[name] AS CHAR(20)) AS TableName
      , CAST(SI.[name] AS CHAR(30)) AS IndexName
      , CAST(SC.[name] AS CHAR(15)) AS ColName
      , CAST(ST.[name] AS CHAR(10)) AS TypeVal
      , CASE WHEN (SI.status & 16)<>0 THEN 'Yes' ELSE 'No' END AS ClusteredIndex
FROM
      SYSOBJECTS SO INNER JOIN SYSINDEXES SI INNER JOIN SYSINDEXKEYS SIK
      ON SIK.[id] = SI.[id]
      AND SIK.indid = SI.indid INNER JOIN SYSCOLUMNS SC INNER JOIN SYSTYPES ST
    ON SC.xtype = ST.xtype ON SIK.[id] = SC.[id]
      AND SIK.colid = SC.colid
      ON SO.[id] = SI.[id]
WHERE SO.xtype = 'u'
AND SI.indid > 0
AND      SI.indid < 255
AND      (SI.status & 64)=0
ORDER BY
      TableName
      , IndexName
      , SIK.keyno
