What do you mean its not a true database server?
I should have said that when I went to import I was able to say which server I wanted to import from, but I was not able to identify a server to import too.
Did you install the MSDE? In any case you should be able to back up the databases, move them to the XP box and restore them. Did you install Enterprise Manager on the XP box?
I have installed the Enterprise Manager, but not the Developer Edition. I did find the SQL Group that was on the other server and "registered" it (I think that is the right terminology), however I see that it gives me real-time data and that isn't want I want. Of course right now I'm in the "crap, do I delete that group on the dev/test server? And if I do, will I blow up the data on both ends?"
Tinkering is good... sometimes. ;)
