How to upgrade Sharepoint to SQL 2000

This article describes how to upgrade Sharepoint to full blown SQL 2000 and enable full text search in Sharepoint. All steps involved can be found on the Premium Technology CD (premiuminstallsteps.htm) but this document gives you a visual guide with screenshots of every step. In our forum we see that users install SQL 2000 but forget to check the setting in the installer that gives you the option to install 'Full Text Search'. If you do not install the 'Full Text Search' option it will not work in Sharepoint.
