Restore MSSQL 2000 backup database to 2005

I want to upgrade from MS SQL Server 2000 to 2005. I have the backup file of the current database in 2000. How can I restore (or other way) 2000 database to new 2005 database? I want to keep the tables, views, relationships, data, triggers, procedures, index... Is it possible to do that? Or any walkaround?

just restore the database as u normally did in SQL server 2000.
Once you have restored , change the Database Compatability level to 90 (in order to use the SQl server 2005 features )
