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?

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.
