Least expensive way to develop SQL 7 or 2000 Database on website?

Hi

I am a web / database developer who wants to learn / practice
developing websites using Active Server Pages and MS SQL 7 or MS SQL
2000

Can anybody tell me if there is an inexpensive way to do this?

I already have experience using Active Server Pages, ADO and MS
Access.

Available funds are very limited

Do I need Enterprise Manager?

Do I need a server OS on my PC to do this?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Peace,

Johnny

I believe the SQL Server Developer Edition is less than $40 and you can run
it on XP Pro.

You can download MSDE for free, which is a limited version of SQL Server
(its performance is throttled, and some high-end features aren't available):

http://www.microsoft.com/sql/msde/

But there are no graphical client or management tools provided (ie. no
Enterprise Manager) so you may want to buy the Developer Edition instead,
which is Enterprise Edition with licensing restrictions, and is less than
USD50, I believe. For supported operating systems, see here:
