Well you can't do it the way you've tried.
If you want a certain way that will work with all list types, then upgrade
your WSS 2.0 installation to WSS 3.0. You'll be able to Save List as
Template for all lists and use those templates n your other WSS 3.0
installation. (or you could use stsadm)
Otherwise depending on the list type, experiment with in 2.0 saving to Excel
and then getting back thedata from Excel in 3.0. With document libraries,
copy the documents acrosss (Explorer View to Explorer View) and then copy
the metadata across (Datasheet View to Datasheet Vw). That's one
