I know very little about databases and SQL Server and wanted to know if MSDE and SQL can run on the same box. If not, if I install SQL 2000 on this box will it "upgrade" the other two databases and run under SQL Server?
My experience with software vendors has been they do not recommend multiple databases -- one reason is running in a mixed or a non-mixed mode.
