Is there a setting in SQL Server 2005 that will allow 2 or more client machines to access the same database at the same time?

I have an ADO.Net application that is a client-server application. The application is to be installed on about 5 client machines. They are all going to manipulate data in the same database. Is there a setting in SQL Server 2005 that will allow all machines to access the database at the same time? Or will it only limit one machine at a time?

Great! I have the standard version of SQL Server 2005. Just out of curiosity, what would not be a normal version?

Microsoft ships a limited version of SQL 2005 with Visual Studio - otherwise known as the MSDE version - which is meant for local databases only.
