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.

"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
