SQL Server 2008 management studio with SQL Server 2005

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I would like to install SQL Server managment studio 2008 on my PC. I currently have 2 SQL 2005 servers and wasn't for the moment interested in updating them, I would just like the 2008 Management studio (not the express one though, it doesn't seem to include the profiler or the email configurations under Management). Is it possible or am I obliged to buy a SQL Server 2008 suite?
Thank you
