    SQL Server standard does not usually install on a Workstation OS. You should try SQL Express, or MSDE.

    Along with the above suggestion, Personal and Developer editions can be easily installed on Vista.

    No, I mean "SQL Server 2000 Personal Edition"

    I'm not sure Vista is fully compatible with ANYTHING, including users...
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

    User compatibility is a known issue, but can be resolved in some cases by memory upgrade

    Well, if you can't read the posts above, perhaps you should read the manual?

    What edition you're trying to install? What errors are you getting?
