"localsqlserver" is already defined in "machine.config’ at the server level by default.  So you needs to remove this name first by adding the tag < remove name="LocalSqlServer" / >  in your web.config file before the same name is redinfed in the web.config file

From the SQL Server perspective backup your database on SQL Server 2000 restore it to your new SQL Server 2008. In database properties > options change the compatability level to SQL Server 2008.

Run the below to rebuild all the indexes.

exec sp_msforeachtable "alter index all on [?] rebuild"

Create any windows logins that exist on the old system. For SQL Server logins create them and then run the sp_change_users_login. You will want to look at example B at the bottom of the below link.
