Officially MS states that SQL Server must be run on NT Server. I'm not aware of
the actual details of why SQL Server should be on a server.
I've used it successfully on NT Workstation for a couple of years now. I ONLY use
the SQL Server installation on my workstation for development work. So, I don't
feel as if I'm risking live data.
Again, I've done this for a couple of years and I've had no problem.
