Received this error when I tried to attach an accounting db (which was accidentally on the SQL 2000 server when it got upgraded to SQL 2008).

Could not find row in sysindexes for database ID 7, object ID 1, Run DBCC CHECKTABLE on sysindexes.

I setup a VM with Win2000 server (w/SP4) & SQL 2000 (w/ SP4) & have copied the db over to a folder local within it.

Can anyone tell me how to attach this db to SQL 2000?  We need to reference the information for an audit...

Help is greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you for the link - I had come across that prior to placing this question.  I followed the instructions in that post and am still hitting a wall.  

Is there no way to roll a db back from 2008 to 2000?

I'm afraid not. What you can do though is recreate the database in SQL 2000:
1. Create new database in SQL 2000
2. Generate scripts from objects on the SQL 2008
3. Execute this scripts on the SQL 2000
This is considering that the SQL 2008 DB objects are all compatible with SQL 2000.
