You can normally attach the database files to a SQL Server 2008 server.

Or create a full backup on your old box and restore it on the new box.

In all cases: check the database compatibility level. It should be SQL Server 2000 (80).

Essentially, the upgrade is to restore a database on the new version of SQL.

There are a couple of things that we're advised to do once a database restore has been completed. I've found this is especially true when restoring a SQL 2000 database on SQL 2005 or SQL 2008.

The statistics are supposed to be updated.

And running dbcc updateusage is often needed.

You don't need a tool for that apart from the Upgrade Advisor that comes with SQL Server 2008. You just run it over the SQL 2000 database to get a report about the compatibility. If the report is positive then you just need to backup (or detach) the MSSQL 2000 database and restore (or attach)  it in the MSSQL 2008 instance. The last step is to set the compatibility of the migrated database to 10 (SQL 2008).

DTS's and Jobs can be migrated as well. Complex DTS might need to be rewritten in Integration Services.
Logins need to recreated in the new instance.
