How best to transfer SQL 2000 database to 2005 SQL server?

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a SQL 2000 server that has a database that I need to migrate over to a SQL 2005 server. The database has a few tables that we don't want to migrate because of their size. How do I properly export the tables and maintain all of the indexes, schema information, keys and such so that it all shows up when I import them into the SQL 2005 server?
