If your organization has SQL Server 2000 with SP3a and you do not want to use MSDE, you can proceed to the next section. If you want to install MSDE, do the following:
To install MSDE
setup INSTANCENAME=instancename SAPWD=strongpassword DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=0
For instancename, substitute the desired instance name, such as "frsmon." To ensure database security, choose a strong password to replace strongpassword.
If you are running the console, controller, and database on the same server, you can omit DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=0. For more information about disabling network protocols for MSDE, see article 814130, "INF: How to Secure Network Connectivity for SQL Server 2000 Local Databases" at http://support.microsoft.com/?id=814130.
