What OS do you need to install MS-SQL Server?
Windows NT Workstation or NT Server or others?
Q. What hardware/software can I run SQL Server on?
A. That depends on whether you mean SQL Server "server" - i.e. the
database itself, or SQL Server client tools. To just access SQL Server
itself you just need anything that will run a db-lib or odbc driver.
Where no hardware is mentioned then any hardware that runs the relevant
operating system will also run SQL.
SQL 1.1 Server OS/2 1.30
SQL 1.1 Client Tools Dos, OS2, Win3x, Win9x, WinNT
SQL 4.2 Server OS/2 1.30, WinNT 3.1/3.5/3.51
SQL 4.2 Client Tools Dos/OS2/Win3x/Win9x/WinNT 3.1/3.5/3.51
SQL 6.0 Server WinNT 3.51
SQL 6.0 Client Tools Win9x/WinNT 3.51
SQL 6.5 Server WinNT 3.51/4.0
SQL 6.5 Client Tools Win9x/WinNT 3.51/4.0
SQL 7.0 Server WinNT 4.0 SP3 on 100% Intel Pentium 133Mhz or above
SQL 7.0 Client Tools Win9x/WinNT 4.0 SP3 on 100% Intel Pentium or
(1) This means that SQL 7.0 will not run on 486 machines or some
(2) SQL 7.0 will run on Pentiums slower than 133Mhz, but MS do not
"officially" support it. However, they are unlikely to refuse to take
your fault call and fix the problem, unless it is directly performance

I looking to prepare myself for Microsoft's certification test, 70-029. I
have an old Pentium Pro 200 MHz, running Win95 SP2. Can I run Microsoft SQL
Server 7.0, as a single user? I need to turn SQL Analyzer & Enterprise Mgr.
