Learning stored procedures

I want to learn and experiment with stored procedures and triggers. But, the default databases installed with Delphi (paradox and dbase) don't seem to support stored procedures. What software do I download and install so that I can learn stored procedures? I want links to freely downloadable software, tutorials, etc.

Please reply in comments.

almost all sql database support stored
you can find a trial version of Microsoft SQL Server, and it's book online is a good tutorial.
Also, you can try to use Interbase shipped with delphi c/s version. (interbase version 4 is free??)

I forgot to mention that a tutorial would not be so useful unless I can download and install the server that supports it. I will appreciate links to the software.

I found the Interbase server on my CD that supports it. I had not installed it earlier.
