Server with SQL Server 2005 is only readable running Ubuntu from CD. How can I

  1. find the relevant files and
  2. load onto a different server running SQL Server 2008?

Older back up files exist, but would prefer to use current files.

1) find the relevant files

The mdf files are the database; the ldf files are the logs.

2) load onto a different server running SQL 2008?

Use the Attach database instructions.
