SQL 2005 and Vista

hi Guys, any comments on installing SQL 2005 on Vista AKTHAR
There are few things you need to understand before installing: -Install and Configure IIS (required for a full Sql Server Installation) – Details Here -Sql Server 2005 Express Installs without issues on Vista RC1. Sql Management Studio Express also installs properly. -Sql Server 2005 Enterprise Edition will not install. Client Components will be greyed out. This is understandable, since the Enterprise Edition has always required a Server OS. It will install only on Windows Server Editions. -Sql Server 2005 Developer Edition will also be installed, but I haven’t tried. Don’t forget to install upto latest service packs, KBAhttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/918222 fyi. Alsohttp://www.microsoft.com/sql/howtobuy/sqlonvista.mspx
