Im planning on migrating from SUS to WSUS on the same server (Win 2000) and was wandering do I need to install a new instance of MSDE SQL server or do i use the same one that SUS is using?

WSUS requires a lot of fixes and new versions to work, that SUS never did. You need to install as a minimum  .Net Framework v1.2, MSDE 2000, MDAC v2.7 and BITS v2.0. There are some hotfixes also that need to be applied to the W2K server before you can start the migration. I would back up your MSDE datastore before attempting this upgrade. Also, I've never tried it, but I believe you cannot UPGRADE the version but reinstall WSUS and then start again... M$ may have brought out a migration tool by now but it was never planned.
