For SQL Server 2000, i want to find the initial size of the database file and the transaction log file. How do i find it?

In the enterprise manager-->DB properties the initial size label is misleading, it shows the current size of the db, but not the initial size.

I tried searching for answers on google and this forum but did not find anything.

One chance is to look for the initial size of the model database because sql server is taking that values for default when creating a database.
But if you have created the database with other values then there is no chance except you have created the database by script and you can review your script.

No, you're never too old to Yak'n'Roll if you're too young to die.
