Just restore as per normal. No special treatment is required. It will be automatically converted to the 2008 version.

However, the reverse is not possible. You can't restore a 2008 backup on a 2005.

Resore failed for the server

System.Data.sqlclient.sqlError:Exclusive acess could not be obtained because the database is in use (Microsoft.Sqlserver.smo)

Can you drop this database, restore it all fresh again to see if you get the same error message. Ideally, it won't.
