    it is not too hard. put the disk in and let it spin. if you want to know all of the possible options download SQL Server Books Online from

    http://www.microsoft.com/sql/techinf...2000/books.asp

    and read the chapters regarding installation.

But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    You must install SQL Server Personal Edition (CD 2 of Standard Edition) or MSDE 2000.

    if you have the enterprise edition, you do not need to install personal. the install runs from the same disks.

    When you install MS-SQL on a workstation using XP sp2, to reach that instance of SQL Server from another machine you MUST install SQL sp3a.

    dont install SQL on WinXPsp2
    not on Win2k3 or Win2k or Win9x
    just keep your databases to Linux
    But if you really want it on an WinOS just leave to the Win2k3 Server then.
    Thats the most stable WinOS imo.

    I've known a couple of folks that have installed MS-SQL on Linux, but the process is hideously ugly in my opinion. You have to be a mega-geek to get it to work at all, and I'd be afraid to try to run a business on that combination.

    If you are forced to run Linux, I'd strongly suggest using a different database platform such as DB2 or Oracle. They run reasonably well in the top 40 Linux distributions.
