This question is of a general nature; we are in  the process of migrating sql 2005 {which is running in compatibility mode with 2000} to sql server 2008 clustered environment.

2 paths have been proposed:
1)migrate to 2008 and continue to run in 2000 + 2005 compatibility mode - is this even possible since a lot of features have been deprecated in 2008.

2)migrate to 2008 - how does one identify deprecated code - is there any literature I can refer to on best practises etc.

thanks.

I would take a look at the upgrade advisor:

It will give you a good assessment of your current build, and any issues that may arise during your upgrade.

Also, see this on the deprecated features:
