If you can't put in the CD, then download it from Microsoft. You may need the license key, though, which would be in the CD box.

I'm not sure yet .. they have not gotten back to me.  If for some reason they come back that they don't have sql server at all would it work to use one of the free versions of SQL Server

You could use an Evaluation edition for 180 days. There's also a Developer edition, but that's only for test environments.

The Express version supports limited SSRS features.

You can't just download the SSRS stuff. You download the entire installation, and then you select as part of the installation only those features you want to install.

Here is the link for SQL Server 2012 Express: http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=29062

Here is the link for SQL Server 2014: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/products/sql-server/try.aspx
