I am a Systems Analyst working for a major Ag. Ed. University and have been asked to set up a central
database for a large research project.  I am fully
proficient in NTServer 4.0 admin. and wish to set up
a database in that environment.  Would you recommend
SQL Server 6.5 and if so where can I facilitate the
learning curve - (I need training)?

You will find that SQL Server 6.5 is a lot easier to learn than Oracle.  It is fast, robust, and reliable.  My answer on training depends on two factors; how well can you learn on your own and how much money do you have to spend?  If you don't have a lot of money to spend and you learn well on your own, go to the bookstore and buy the SQL Server Training Kit from Microsoft Press (ISBN 1-55615-930-7).  If you have about $1500 to spend on training or do not learn well from books on your own, I would find the nearest Microsoft Authorized Training Center and take a course.  If you can't learn at all and have a lot of dough to spend, we can set your server up for you.  Just e-mail me at dennis@ndimensional.com
