Server Components Can't Be Installed

I have a Windows XP machine that I have run SQL Server on in the past.
I recently re-formatted the hard drive and re-installed XP from scratch,
and now when I try to re-install SQL Server 2000, I get an error message
saying that the "server component is not supported on this operating
system. Only client components will be available for installation." I
have a hard time understanding why the server components can't be
installed on XP, especially since I've installed them before on this
same machine.

Can anyone explain why this might be, and what I can do (if anything) so
that it can be installed again?

Thanks.

What version of SQL Server are you installing? Developer, Personal,
and MSDE are the only versions that run on XP.

My employer has provided me with the SQL Server 2000 Personal disk from the SQL Server 2000 Enterprise kit as this is reported here on the MSDN web site to be the version that is supported on Windows XP. In fact so many of you kind people confess to having succeeded in doing it. I have tried...

Hello, in order to perform backup/restore MSSQL database using SMO, one needs to reference several namespaces in a backup class : using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common; using Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo; Unfortunately, MSSQL 2005 and MSSQL Express keep them in different place.
