Should I simply upgrade an existent SQLServer 2005 to SQLServer 2008? What can I do about databases created with SQLServer 2005 (some under SQLExpress)? Thanks.

My advice would be don't do an in-place upgrade for any production SQL Server.

Install a new instance and then backup from the old 2005 instance and restore to the new one. Upgrade of the database is automatic and virtually instantaneous.

2005 SSIS packages should work without modification in 2008.
