Currently, I am running sql server 2000 and will be moving to sql server 2005 (new installation) in a few days.

My questions is, what is the best process to follow to migrate my 2000 database to 2005?
Can someone share the steps involved with exporting the 2000 database and how to import it to the new 2005 installation of SQL Server?

Thanks

<new 2005 installation of SQL Server?>

you can:
- detach\attach db
- backup\restore
- move db users\ logins...
-- if it is ready - change compatibility from 80 to 90 in db property

For testing, I took the latest backup from 2000 and tried to import it in 2005, but it does not recognize the backup 2000 backup!

Am I doing something wrong?

yes, i think you are...instead of "importing it", rigth click databases in management studio on the 2005 instance, select restore database, and use the wizard from there to restore the db.
