Install media for Sql 2005 Client Tools?

[Sql Server 2005]

I have our MSDN binder sprawled out on my desk and am looking at the array of Sql 2005 DVDs.

Where do I find the client tools install?  If you say, "on the Sql install", that could apply to many DVDs in this mess.

And I ran our SE install earlier on my laptop--just to see if I could see an option for "client tools"--but didn't.

Where do you install client tools from?  I'm starting to wonder if I have everything I should.  I mean, if there's supposed to be a disc that says client tools on it, then I guess I'm missing a disc.

Thanks.

The option should be there:
On the components to install dialog during setup select
Workstation tools, Books Online and development tools
then click on the Advanced tab at the bottom.

Under the Client Components node,
select the client tools you want to install.

So I just put our Standard Edition install disc back in?  It's somewhere on there?  I guess I just need to stick it out a bit farther than I did?

Management Studio (i.e. client tools) are on the same install DVD as the SQL Server install.

Your end users will not need the client tools to use DB's. What are you trying to accomplish? The only reason you would need client tools is for DB Administrators.

I have users with a Sql 2000 configuration tool on their PCs that allows you to set up named pipes, TCP settings, etc, and also to name and define connection strings for other client-server apps to use.  I thought this local Sql client was what was called the "client (configuration) tool".

SQL 2005 changed the client tools application to "SQL Server Management Studio". This app fundamental is just like the app you are used to with SQL 2000 "Enterprise Manager".
You can also use Management Studio to manage SQL 2000 DB's.
Keep in mind, Management Studio has huge advancements from Enterprise Manager (this is a good thing)...the look and feel is completely different as well.

I use mgmt studio.  I'm just looking for this little tool that some users have that manages their connection strings for some installed applications.

When you install the Client Tools. You will get an app call "SQL Server Configuration Manager". This app is the upgraded version of "SQL Server Client Network Utility".

I'm sorry for the delay here, guys.  I forgot about you.

Now I'm in my usual quandary where I have one early, correct answer, but more detail from another responder.  Is anyone going to have their feelings hurt if I split the points?
