Hi jimmysupport,

You need to have purchased The Premium Edition of SBS to allow you to use SQL server on the SBS box.  If you have, you will find a separate CD Named "Premium".
Insert this into the CD/DVD drive to commence the installation.

itcoza,

I suggest you download SQL 2005 Express edition and rather install that.  The cost of purchase for full version of SQL does not make sense if you are going to install it on the SBS server.  If you plan to install on a member server, that's fine.

OK M - because I have a copy of Premium with SQL 2000 and service packs to 3. Thought I would use that.
Will the Express Edition work ok for one dtabase I have?

Express is great. Make sure you choose the one with all the management components  - the bigger download.

Choose the optiond on the right of the download options.  234MB as well as the SP1
