Personal Sql Server

Hi I would like to install SQL server on my windows 2000 Professional machine for practice purpose. but I noticed that I can only install the client part. However, someone told me that within the SQL 2000 Server enterprise edition cd, you can install the personal server. can you please let me know if this is correct. Thank you,

Yes that’s right, it’s on CD2 of the Enterprise Edition set. SQL Server Personal Edition is the one you’re after. Tom Pullen

Thank you, for your help
Actually if you have the MSDN CD, there is a Developer Edition which I like better then the Personal Edition.
