Move Sharepoint databases to new SQL server with same name as old SQL server

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
The server guys have built a new SQL server with the same name as the old one.  They say it will use the same IP.

How do I move all the databases, including content, config, sharedservices, sharedservice_search, admin - all the database?  Again they made the new SQL server the same name as the old one, differnt box. There is no practice area availble.  
Old sql server is 2005 new one is 2008.
