Default Packaging an VB.NET Database Application

I have an VB.NET simple application that I wrote. It only consists of 3 forms and an application configuration file. It hooks into an SQL Server 2000 local database.

What I want to do is package this application. How do I do that? And when I package this application will it incorporate the database within the package?

It's a "Classic Wrox" title- but you might still be able to find it.. "Visual Basic.Net Deployment Handbook".. You might want to contact A*PRESS and see if there's an expected be-release date.

I'm not 100% on this but I think that you have to have SQL Server 2000 running on any machine that you run your software on...So if you are planning on distributing your application you'll have to install SQL Server on your target machine. SQL Server isn't like Access where your application will work on any machine whether or not they have Access installed. Like I said I'm not 100% on this though, I could be wrong...Just something to think about.
