SQL Sever 2000 - How do I create a Cursor that returns data and stores it in a table

I am working with SQL Sever 2000 and I am trying to create a cursor that will run another stored procedure and return its resutls and store those resutls in a temp table.
CREATE cur_name CURSOR
FOR exec SP_runstored procedure
OPEN cur_name

-- standard way of doing it, is inserting the resultset directly into #temp table. cursor is not necessary.
create table #temptest (...)
insert into #temptest exec SP_runstored_procedure
