on our sql 2005 server i noticed that windows indexing is enabled on all the drives - should this be enabled? - it sounds like something that would slow things down to me when you consider the amount of transactions going through the system!

It's generally not recommended to have the indexing service enabled on servers, unless you are running some application that requires it (but I can't think of one that would).  So I would recommend disabling it.

interestingly enough...there is a bug in 2008 with lock escalation that could have potentially increase your CPU and memory usage.

My guess is maybe you have a new 2008 service on that you didn't have on the 2003 server.
