Distributing Application / SQL Server Express question

P: n/a
Hi

I have an Access background and I wish to create a window application which
will use a SQL connection for its data. I use VS 2005 Professional and know
that the SQL Servicer Express edition is part of it.

I'm used to distributing my applications split and putting the backend on
the server.
1. How do I distribute SSExpress with my application?
2. Is it the same as installing on the client's server machine or does my
client have to purchase SQL Server?

TIA
Michelle
