There is legacy support for DTS in SQL 2008, but the preferred method is to upgrade to Integration Services.

You would need to install some add-on packages like support for SQL2005

Look for : Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Backward Compatibility Components
In the Features Pack downloads : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=228DE03F-3B5A-428A-923F-58A033D316E1&displaylang=en


Otherwise you will need to convert / rewrite in SSIS

I strongly recommend to re-write your OLD DTS packages in SSIS,
because there are MAJOR differences in SSIS, and you can use lots of Tasks and transformations which you didn't have in old DTS.
