You are trying to restore on a CTP version of SQL Server (i.e. prior to RTM - the official release) - RTM was 9.00.1399, SP1 is 9.00.2047.

I would recommend that you get the latest released version of SQL 2005 (SQL Express is downloadable from Microsoft). Actually I would get the latest version and SP1, and install on all your servers.

If you have the full version of SQL Server 2005, you can download that and install it. Alternatively, download SP1 and apply that to your version of SQL - this might resolve your problem.

I downloaded and tried to install this SP.. but i am getting this.. error

You cannot apply this service pack to a pre-release version of SQL Server 2005. To continue, upgrade to the release version of SQL Server 2005,  and then run setup again.

what should i do now?

Upgrade to the release version of SQL Server. I don't believe that you have any other option. You don't hav to uninstall your existing version - these can run side by side.
