I have sql server 2005 implementation and maintenance.

it comes with 2 disks, 1 of which 180 day trial of enterprise edition. this is what i am trying to install on my laptop.

i have installed vmware and on that i installed xp pro.

i am at lesson 4 which is innstalling.

i get 13 out of 14 ok but i get 1 warning. IIS not installed. so i downloaded iis manager 6 but it still states not installed.

how do i get iis installed.

also i noticed at the beggining of the book it says i will need windows server 2003 to go through all the exercises.

what, how and where do i get this. how can/can i install on my Laptop.

Thanks for taking a look, i hope you can help.... Jay

Windows server 2003 you can get a 180 day trial from msdn website. You have to register for it etc... Then you can download it or get a disc sent to you boss. Its all bless.
