You can't.
When you attached the database to SQL Server 2008, the internal version number of database was changed.

N 56°04'39.26"
E 12°55'05.63"

you can't attached it back. When you attached a lower version database to a higher version, SQL Server automatically convert it to that version. So now your database is in SQL 2008 version and SQL 2000 will not be able to recognize it.

Hope you have a backup copy of it.

Script all objects, export all data, recreate the database on SQL 2000. Or restore an earlier backup.
