i am try'g run the script below on a sql 2000 database, which usually works ok. this database is a little large (4gb+) and i get timeout error. how can i extent or eliminate the timeout. keep in mind that i am in the "KISS" mode ;-)

declare database_cursor CURSOR for select name from master..sysdatabases
declare @database_name sysname

open database_cursor
fetch next from database_cursor into @database_name
while @@FETCH_STATUS=0
  print @database_name
  dbcc checkdb(@database_name) with no_infomsgs
  fetch next from database_cursor into @database_name

close database_cursor
deallocate database_cursor
