Yes, use backup/restore.

Thanks for your help.
One more question!
Are the system database(master,msdb,model) must be backuped and restore to the new machine? Or just only backup/restore the user database which one I wanted to copy?

It depends on what you intend to do. Restoring those isn't the easiest thing in the world in 6.5.

It depends what you have stored in the system databases. In master are your logins. That can easily be recreated if you know the password. In msdb are the jobs, alerts and other things. I typically only need to grab my logins and jobs, so I don't ever bother restoring the system databases.
