Hi All.
I need to upgrade SQL Server 2000 to Express 2012 (via 2005).

1. Can one install both versions on same machine? (2005 first?)?
2. Do I need two management studios (or will 2012 work for both installs?)?

thank you

yes

I am not 100% sure if sql 2012 studio will work fully on sql 2000 instances, I know they can work on sql 2005 instances.
if it works, only the features available in sql 2000 will be available, obviously

I believe you can have multiple versions of SQL on the same computer.  As for the mgmt studio i am using 2014 and it works with 2005 and 2008 and a few express versions.

I'd install 2005 with a different instance name, as it's just needed temporary. Otherwise this should work.

As said, the latest Management Studio works with different server versions, unsure about SQL2000, a lot changed since then.

Bye, Olaf.
