I have the class library where I have the web part logic and I want to test the webpart but don't have any excutable to run. Visual Studio 2008 says I have to have an executable to test it. Not sure the best way to test. I have my own sharepoint site and site collection and MOSS 2007 installed on windows server 2008 R2.

Please give an example of how I can test the webpart. This is a project developed by someone else but want to test this.

I often use LinqPad to test things like this - even if it has nothing to do with Linq. You load the dll reference to your class library and then type a few lines of C# code to call the class library function and display the returned response using the LinqPad Dump() statement.

It works similar to a C# interpreter.

See http://www.linqpad.com. I found it worth it to spend the extra $$ to get the Intellisense option but the free version is otherwise full-featured.
