Convert SQL 2000 Database to SQL 2005.

It says to run the mssql2005conversion.sql.script. I cannot find this script anywhere.

Does anyone know how to upgrade a 2000DB to 2005? I cannot get this to work.

    Is that a script that is included with SQL 2005?

    I believe all you have to to is back it up from the 2000 server and restore it to the 2005 server, and it will do all the necessary conversion.
