Importing .sql file into Server 2005...

I have a .sql file that will create a new database.  It was made for SQL 2000, but we are running SQL 2005.  When I run the .sql file it completes, but gives some errors about join operators that do not work in 2005.  I know that you can make a database's compatibility level SQL 2000 after it is created, but I need to set the compatibility level before I execute the script so that it finishes without errors.  Can this be done?

I did not create the .sql file.  I am also not an SQL wiz by any means (took one class in college about 5 years ago and haven't used it since).  Do I have to go through and manually change the join operators?  If so, what do I change them to?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

I need to get this resolved pretty quick.  I can edit the file myself, but I cannot figure out exactly what needs to be changed.  I have attached a code snippet...what do I change it make it compatible with SQL Server 2005 (ANSI)?
SELECT i.FLDREC_NUM,
          i.FLDEMPLOYEE,
          i.FLDNORMAL,
          i.FLDRESULT,
          i.FLDDATE,
          E.FLDBDATE,
          E.FLDSEX,
          G.FLDM_OR_F
   FROM   inserted        i,
          EMPLOYEE E,
          GENDER   G
   WHERE  E.FLDREC_NUM  = i.FLDEMPLOYEE AND
          E.FLDSEX     *= G.FLDCODE     AND
          i.FLDNORMAL   > ' '

Well, it turns out that I was going about this the wrong way.  I had to create a blank database in SQL 2005 (90) and then set its compatibility to SQL 2000 (80).  I didn't have to change any of the code at all.
