You can migrate DTS packages into SSIS.  Check out:

you can run the DTS on SQL server 2008, if you don't want to convert them.

Below is the method I've used.  To be honest, I haven't worked with or searched for any 3rd party solutions.

With an Integration Services project open in Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS), right-click the Packages folder and select Migrate DTS 2000 Packages to launch the DTS Package Migration Wizard. Once launched, the wizard will quickly walk you through a migration process which can migrate most DTS tasks. The migrated packages will be added to the Integration Services project that is currently open. You can also start the DTS Package Migration Wizard from SQL Server Management Studio or from the command prompt.
