MS SQL 2000 contains a database called PUBS I am doing a college course and want to get the database and load it up in SQL 2008.  Could someone advise how to do this.  I installed 2008 and dont know how to get the query tool working or how to select a database.  I also dont know if it has the pubs database if not how do I extract it from 2000 without installing ?

Yes I know very basic stuff but only learning

with sql 2008, you should actually use the new adventureworks demo databases:

or, you stay in sql 2000 ...

Microsoft makes their sample databases available via CodePlex:  http://sqlserversamples.codeplex.com.

There is a link on that page that jumps to http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/northwind/, where you can get the pubs and Northwind sample databases from SQL Server 2000.
