    I'm sure there are plenty of articles written about migrating DTS to SSIS 2005.  Most of what is written in those articles will apply to SSIS 2008 as well.
    And the conclusion in those articles is going to include that you're better off if you start from scratch.  Simple DTS packages will be migrated with success. More complex packages will not really be migrated but wrapped in a "Execute DTS 2000 Package" task.  Or not at all if other issues arise.

    To know for sure, give the Package Migration wizard a try and find out that if produces.  Another option, before trying the Package Migration wizard, is the Upgrade Advisor.

    If all that doesn't work out as expected, there are some third-party tools available to aid in the migration process.  But I don't have any experience with those so that's all I can say about them: they exist...
