Where to purchase sql server 2008

I have the express version...would like the functionality that comes with the full version.  Any ideas?  I am a teacher by trade so I may qualify for an educator discount if one exists.

Thanks~

if you don't intend to use it for anything permanent , just for development... then the DEVELOPMENT version which has the full features of the enterprise version may be of use...

what are you planning to do with the product?
this is not the type of product you can normally buy online, however most computer resellers / consultants should be able to supply.
If in doubt try microsoft pinpoint to find a reseller in your area

To be more specific, I "rent" a dedicated server from a 3rd party which I use as a web server, which also hosts my sql server express 2008.  I do most of my web programming on my local machine and then ftp to the server.  I am pretty much a one-man operation.  I do run a couple of vb6 apps off of my local machine with a copy of my db.  It would be nice if I could efficiently run those apps off of my server via vb6, which is another thread I have going right now.
