I have built a new server with 4GB ram, 2 Xeon E5410 cpu's on a Tyan Tempest I5400XT motherboard with 4 500gb harddrives set in a 0+1 raid format.
Access 2007 database in a solo physician clinic with no more than 10 concurrent users.

I want to take advantage of the two cpu's.

Can the express edition work for me or will I need the workgroup edition?

I thought the workgroup edition would work, but I was confused by the # processors, as the Xeon is a quad core.  I think by 2 they mean two separate processors and in that event it would take advantage of both cpus.  I also noticed that the express is limited in ram and the workgroup (32 bit) was not limited.

Too bad free sure is cheap!

When you buy SQL product, usually it already contains 5 or 10 CALs, this stated in the price.
There's no CAL necessary for printer, I think.
