Install Client Connectivity (SQL Server 2000) Only w/ Less Files?

P: n/a
I have a 500-MB full installation CD for SQL Server 2000. All I need
is to install "Client Connectivity" component (about 272K) on a bunch
of workstations for users across the nation.

How do I reduce the installation file size, by eliminating most of the
unwanted files?

Thanks.

What precisely are you looking for? Client Connectivity is mainly
MDAC 2.6 I believe, even if there are also files needed for DB-Library.

If you are looking for MDAC, keep in mind that computers running
Windows XP and Windows 2003 already have MDAC 2.7 and 2.8 respectively.
For Windows 2000, Windows NT and the toy Windowses you need MDAC 2.6
though. But you can download MDAC 2.6 from www.microsoft.com. Be sure
to also download the latest service pack for the MDAC.

Thanks for your information. I will just download the MDAC which has
only 5 MB.
