Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010

I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson

Hey there. You have a good start, with first upgrading from 2.0 to 3.0, and then from 3.0 to 4.0 (foundation 2010). But you should probably review the TechNet documentation on proper upgrade procedures. Focus more on the default install/configuration details, and don't yet do any manual IIS configurations. Work on just the basics...

Okay... I will review the technical document from Microsoft again and hopefully see where the mistake is coming from. Thanks for your help.

Also just to add. When you attached your content databases, do you mean you restored them to SQL and then used STSADM -o addcontentdb to upgrade them?
