Explaining the differences between SQL Server 2000's DTS and SQL Server 2005's Integration Services requires either a book or an entire dedicated Web site. In fact, I just purchased Professional SQL Server 2005 Integration Services by Wrox and it looks great. I've also got some great examples and tons of information including many sample packages on sqlis.com. Finally, you can also find webcasts, articles and blogs by the Microsoft SSIS development/management team here.
