  1. I'm trying to install Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition on a Windows XP Professional.
    During Installation, I received this message as shown below:
    "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition server Component is not supported on this operating system. Only client components will be available for installation."
    What should I do?? Is it a must to install the SQL 2000 server on Windows xp or 7
    help me

    You can't install SQL Server (Ent. Edition) on a Client Machine as described in the error. According to Microsoft here is the list of supported operating systems:

    Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition
    Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition
    Windows Server 2003, Datacenter Edition
    Windows 2000 Server
    Windows 2000 Advanced Server
    Windows 2000 Datacenter Server
    Microsoft Windows NT Server version 4.0 with Service Pack 5 (SP5) or later
    Windows NT Server version 4.0, Enterprise Edition, with SP5 or later
