I am performing a swing migration on an SBS network.
Everything is happily transfered to the new server except sharepoint.
Old server was SBS Premium.  SQL 2000 Sharepoint with full text searching.
New server SBS Premium R2 with Sharepoint MSDE. (empty database)

I have seen threads about upgradeing 2000 to 2005 and for updating MSDE to 2005 but I haven't seen one where I need to remove the MSDE move the 2000 files over and attach them to the 2005 server.

Any hints?
