Upgrade 2000 SQL Server to 2008 R2

I'm about upgrading a sql server 2000 instance to 2008 r2.

The instance has a database that is 55GB.

Somebody please tell me what are the steps I would need to follow to get the task accomplished with issues afterward.

Run upgrade advisor  (2008r2) to identify things to take care of.
Test, test, test before you do it on production.
Attend the compatibility_level of your db http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb510680.aspx
After upgrade : recompile all SP/UDF, reindex, update statistics,


A nasty thing you could have going from 2000 to 2005 (so also 2008r2) is the error 'Ambiguous column name reference' when you have a query with aliased tables but don't always use the alias when using a column in a group by or order by.
=> again test  , test , test
