Can't see Sharepoint 2007 websites since upgrade.

While upgrading Sharepoint Server 2003 to Sharepoint 2007 I mistakenly uninstalled Sharepoint services 2.0 before the upgrade was complete.  Now the server is upgraded but I can not see any of the existing websites.  I am connected to the Sharepoint SQL database but can't see the websites.  

Is there any way to add the Sharepoint 2003 websites back into Sharepoint 2007?

Thanks

Brad

Hi Brad,

UnInstalling SharePoint does not delete the data from the database, thus you always have the option of Content DB Migration
Steps involved in Content Db Migration are:
1. Each SPS 2003 content db to MOSS 2007 Farm
2. SPS 2003 is also available
3. Content is only migrated
4. Requires new farm to be created
5. Many manual steps involved
6. Best if moving to new hardware

There is a good document on Migration published by Microsoft available from the following link:
