MS SQL 2005 and XP Home

Since I cannot instal SQL 2005 cleint in my XP Home notebook I cannot access my SQL 2005 server database. Is there an alternative?

Plenty of alternatives:
1. Export the data to an Excel file
2. Export the data to an Access file
3. Install a Virtual Machine system, install Server on the virtual machine, and install SQL on the virtual server.
4. Try using SQL Express if the database isn't too large.
