WSS Central Administration content database location

This is probably very simple but I cannot locate where to find the location of the Central Administration Content Database for WSS 3.0

Looking to move site to a new SQL Server and have the Content, Config, and Search Help DB locations to move.

Check the registry

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0\Secure\ConfigDb

The content DB will be in content databases under the web application

Go to SharePoint Central Administration

Central Administration > Application Management > Content Databases  

Change the web application to see what database is where.

The search can be located Central Administration > Operations > Services on Server   > Windows SharePoint Services Search
