Kevin has addressed the 'this is CMS, not SQL' issue, but I'll clarify
'running MSSQL' a bit. You can run the *client* tools on Win2K, XP, probably
3.1 for all I know. But the database itself requires server architecture to
run. So, to test drive MSSQL, you need a machine with server software
running, unless you know someone who'll let you connect your client to their
server, in which case you can install the client tools and get playing.
