It will be also a good chance for you to download and install SQL 2005 evaluation edition from MS site and test with some resource intensive database on your test platform, that can give you more indepth information about what your manager is wanted. Satya SKJ

my suggestion is get SQL2005 eval on a reasonable machine (data on multiple disks), best if you can have SQL 2000 on a second machine of approximately the same characteristic,
then run you big reporting queries, and use that as a comparison instead of trying duplicate your full workload
