Copy, Attach or Restore DB from CD to SQL Server 2000

Hi ! I have a DB which I unzip from a CD 150 files including .mdf & .ldf & put in (Actually log is in different drive), but I want DB available ASAP, and getting Error so I put in same directory.

E:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\abc.mdf
E:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\abc.ldf

and 139 .ndf files.
I try to attach with Enterprize Manage but got error then tried with sp_attach_db (Error 8144: Procedure or function sp_attach_db has too many arguments specified).
Is there any other or simple way I can resolve this problem.
Note: The server already had DB XYZ which I already Deleted, and restored want to restored with the Same Name I don't have any .BAK file, so i can't force restore any alternate.
Any Help will be highly appreciated ASAP, as I am running out of time.
Thanks

I ran that script, getting the same problem, with 148 error with .ndf (these are the tables names in DB abc), I am searching the D drive location, as Data & logs are on diffrent drive.


Server: Msg 5105, Level 16, State 5, Line 1
Device activation error. The physical file name 'D:\builds\Company123\SQL2000\MQASQL\data\abc1_Basic_data.ndf' may be incorrect.

Hi ! aneeshattingal

Thanks your Answer is right for one part , I want the easy solution If you Have? as I have to finish before your answer came, here I have to write 148 time the .ndf , as only 16 support in sp_attach or through EM. I will put later the Solution as my friend helps me.

Thanks
