Databases are upward compatible, not downward compatible. You can try the following link, but your chances of success are next to nil, and your effort will be substantial.

If you have both a 2008 and a 2005 system up at the same time, you can try to DTS data and objects from one DB to another.  It will be longer than a restore, and not every object can be transferred, though.
