    1. yes
    2. depends. developers needs the developer tools. you can install the personal\developer edition with the server tools locally. Workstations using client server applications need the drivers.

    Eh, i am not sure. As i know it is SQL server 2000 Enterprise. I had tried and it says is incompatible with the OS, only can install the client part. As i need to develop some program using the MS SQL, any suggestions which version should i use, and where can I actually get it???

    i think enterprise manager is helpful enough. for query u can open the table as query from enterprise manager.
