I have a document library using the site template from WSS 2.0. I upgraded to 3.0 so I created a site template from the default 2.0, but how do I transfer the documents from the old template to the new template? Or better yet, am I able to just change the current template to use to the default 3.0 template? Thanks.

Not really. I have allready upgraded. I just want to make my document libraries and list content use the default 3.0 site template and look like its a fresh install with content.

You cannot change the template of a site once it has been created. You will have to manually move the documents. I don't really understand how you created the 2.0 template as I just a 2.0 to 3.0 migration and everything looks like the 3.0 version. Have you tried site settings/reset to site definition?
