    Hi all,

    We manage a client's SBS 2K3 Premium network. They have an external
    consultant who deals with their client database which - to date - has run on
    SQL 2000. They wish to install [or us to install] SQL Express 2005 on the
    SBS box to match another site the client has [which we don't manage and
    which isn't SBS] as they're having issues keeping things consistent between
    the two sites.

    Our questions are this:

    1] Can SQL Server 2000 and SQL Express 2005 co-exist on an SBS box
    2] Will installing SQL Express 2005 be likely to 'break' anything related to
    WSUS on the SBS box
    3] Is this an MS-supported scenario?

    Thanks in advance,
