converting dts packages from sql 2000 to sql 2008

just looking for suggestions on the best way to do this. One thing is we have a lot of connections that need to be changed, so, I was thinking to save the packages to basic first and then just do a find and replace for the new server. But, not sure how to use the .bas file after it's been updated. Should it be imported to sql 2008 somehow or what?

Yes.. You need to change it in all of your existing packages.
No other workaround for that.

One simple thought:

If you have DTS packages available with you, then you can simply use Execute DTS 2000 Package Task in SSIS 2008 and run it out..

Thanks, but, since there is new server hardware, I need to change the connection info in all the packages and was looking for an easy way to do that.
