I'm getting quotes for a project where I would like just the basics for the OS and DB.  The project is in .net and MS SQL 2005 and this will be done on a development environment.  What do I need in terms of OS with the proper license.  Can I get Windows Server 2008, Web Edition or do I need Standard with 5 CALs?  Is there an MS SQL 2005 developer edition which allows functionality but doesn't have a ton of licenses?

Yes you can get Microsoft "SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition"
This can be used for a development environment but not for Live systems, it costs around $100.

Windows Server 2008 Web Edition can only function as a simple web server, if you want to run with Domain Permissions it would need to be part of a Domain which has another server as Domain Controller.  It pretty much comes with just IIS, is your appliation asp.NET, or a distributed .NET application?

You may be better off with Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition.  The CAL's are the number of users who can log into the server if it is running as a Domain Controller.  Not sure on CALs for running applications, I am guessing you would need enough CALs for the number of Application users.
