WSS 2.0 to WSS 3.0 Migration

I had a WSS 2.0 site (no custom parts) that I needed to upgrade AND migrate to another server. So I pretty much followed the advice on .

The above article is unclear about how the DB was transferred however, so had to wing it. Basically what I ended up doing was copying the .mdf and .ldf files of the WSS 2.0 content DB over to the Data folder of a SQL Express 2005 server --NOT the WSS 3.0 embedded DB (I tried that, but it gave me errors when I ran stsadm).

Note, after the DB was added and all set up in the Central Administration, I had to change the site collection administrator. The migrated site still had the OldServer\Administrator as the Primary site collection administrator. Other than that pretty seamless...
