syntax using the move command

on a sql2000+sp4 server I am trying to restore from backup the master DB from one server to another, and in a different location on the recovery server, as part of a disaster recovery plan. Working the sql on the second server, I start up in single server mode (sqlservr -c -m) and try to run the following in query analyizer

RESTORE DATABASE MASTER
               FROM DISK = 'c:\sql_backup_test\mastermaster_db_200603270200.BAK',
               WITH MOVE  'MASTER'  TO  'c:\sql\mssql\data\master_mdf',
               MOVE 'MASTLOG' TO 'C:\sql\mssql\data\master.ldf,


It is givining me an error of incorrect syntax near the keyword 'with' on line 3 I am not a DB developer and not experienced with SQl. Any help would be appreciated.

to move the master database, simply do the following steps:

* shut down sql server
* move the physical files
* change the sql server's registry settings that specify the master database file locations
* startup sql server

registry path:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\SQLINSTNAME\MSSQLServer\Parameters

it's your job to close it. either accept a single comment as answer, or split the points using the split points link below the last comment (which I guess won't appear here as you need at least 60 points to split)
