Restoring a sql database

Hi there, I am a novice when it comes to restoring data from veritas, I have on my server version 12.5 and I have a sql database that has been backed up but I have no idea as to how to restore it... I really need someone to walk it through with me so that I can succesfully restore it ok... Basically one of our servers crashed completely and I am using another server that runs backup exec (same version) to restore the databases.... the backup data is on a usb hard drive and I would like to restore it ideally to the newly built server....
I desperately need some help with this so that our staff can then start to work..!! :0)

In a couple of words and easy, check this points :

1. Your Sql server version installed and updated on your new server.
2. Use same instance name, or your need to reconfigure your applications.

3. If you have the mdf and ldf files, you can attach them, other way, you
4. must have the sql backup file (.bak) and restore it.

5. Check your apps connections to this restored or attached database.

Hope this help you.
