Move/Restore MySQL Database to New Server with New Version of MySql

Hi, I have worked with MySql in the past and have a customer with a server running MySQL 5.0 on Window 2003 server.  I was using MySql Admin 1.2.17 and Query Browser to do work for this customer in the past.  They want me to move their database to a new Windows 2008 server on which they have installed MySql Server 5.5 and Workbench 5.2.35CE.  I know that I used to use MySql Administrator to backup the file and then I could restore it to my server locally but I can not seem to figure out how to restore the backup file to the new server using the Workbench tools.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks but not needing to move user privleges, only one database.  Hoping to use GUI tools.  Backup on old server and then restore on new server I was hoping. Can that be done?

Still looking for help on this.  Anyone know if I can backup a database from a MySql 5.0 system and then restore it to a server with 5.5?  How do I restore with the Workbench GUI tool?
