In Internet Explorer, you should be able to go into File --> and choose the option to 'Work Offline'.

If you don't have the menu bar handy, be sure to press the 'ALT' key to bring it up.

Let me know if this is not what you're looking for, or if you need any further assistance.

Any browser can 'Work Offline'... but no server side programming languages will function that way.  PHP and ASP.NET that you would use to access your database thru your web browser require the web server, even if it is a local one, to operate.  You can use SQL Server Management Studio SSMS to access and use your local SQL Server 2008 database.

So I can't run my server-side code "offline"?  Can I set up iis on my local machine and access the files that way?  I am running classic asp.  If so, how do I toggle between the two depending on whether I have internet access of not?

If you set up IIS and allow 'localhost' access, then you don't need internet access.  I just checked by setting up 127.0.0.1 as one of the IP addresses for IIS on another computer.  When I pulled the network cable, it would still go to 'localhost' and run PHP and ASP.

Set it up that way and you don't need to 'toggle' between the two.  You just pick the URL that you are working on, 'localhost' or whatever the other one is.
