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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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

I see the DSN there that lists the configuration database but no others. I know the SQL server where the Adcmin Content DB is located I need to determine the name of the DB

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
