Packaging a SQL2005 application

I've created quite a few .Net apps we use locally and I generally just
publish them as ClickOnce applications to a network drive. Now I'm being
asked to make my app portable to other networks/companies. So I want to
create a setup program on CD/DVD. The hurdle here is that my apps are often
database driven and use SQL2005 as the backend. I'm not sure how to go
about doing this and just looking for a point in the right direction. I'm
currently using Visual Studio 2008 (Visual Basic), SQL 2005, and most of the
apps were created with .Net2.0.

Thanks,
Ryan

SQL2005, not SQLServer Express or SQLServerCE? (Just checking).

We're using SQL 2005, not express. That could be one of the issues that
other companies may not have SQL 2005 or a dedicated database server. Would
SQL Express be a viable solution for networked applications with say 5-10 or
possibly more users? I've created a SQL query to create the database and
tables, is there any way to package this query in the Install setup?

Thanks,
Ryan
