I need to move our current sharepoint site from one server to another server, both running 2007.  I have backed up the current farm.

I am in need of assistance in moving them to the other server.  What  would the steps be?

If you have same versions of sharepoint installed on both different servers or farms then create a web app on destination server with some test database.Detach the test database once web app is created and simply attach the moved content database and attach it on destination server via stsadm addcontentdb command.

I'm a little new to database detachment.  What would the steps be to do this?  Also.  The current configuration is running from SqL 2005 and it's moving to SQL 2008.  Is this okay?

Yes its ok. You can take a backup of SQL content database from SQL 2005. Just right click on database > go to tasks > backup. This will help to take database backup.
Once backup is done go to SQL 2008 and right click on system databases and click on restore.
Give the database a name. Restore done successfully.

Doing the backup and restore can only be done after I do a web application on the new server correct?
