You also have to add them to your sharepoin site.
This can be done with the stsadm command.
If you don't have this tool you can download it at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=c1039e13-94da-4d7d-8cae-3b96fa5a4045
Then you will have to do the following:
- Log in to target SharePoint server
- Copy site template to SharePoint server
- Use this command to add template:
Path to STSADM
If you do not have the path for STSADM set, you will have to change your prompt location to be C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN
stsadm -o addtemplate -filename -title [-description ]
stsadm -o addtemplate -filename c:\template .stp -title "This is what people see" -description "Short description of purpose of template"
You will be prompted to do an iisreset to complete the template installation. Once iisreset is complete login to a web site create a new site and under "Custom" tab for "Template Selection" you should see your new template as an option
This should do the trick ;)

If you want to copy the whole sharepoint configuration do the following:
Make a full backup of your MOSS. You can do this with the following command.
stsadm.exe –o backup –directory “C:\Backup_SharePoint” –backupmethod full
After this you can restore this to your test.
Start the "Windows SharePoint services Administration" service manually. (if this is not done the restore will generate 3 error messages)
stsadm.exe -o restore -directory "C:\Backup_SharePoint" -restoremethod overwrite
