two methods of upgrading editions of sql2005...

in-place upgrade, quicker, but risker...backup all userDBs first then run setup of workgroup edition +

"conversion", slower, safer...still backup all userDBs still...
install named instance of workgroup edition + on same or diff box. migrate DBs over via SSIS, copy Database wizard, etc...
