If anyone's like me and is used to using pubs for sample applications, you might find that you miss it when you install SQL Server 2005.  Now I'm sure there are more ways to go about getting it back, but for the heck of it, I did a local hard drive search for pubs, and look what it turned up.  Not only do I have a script to install pubs but also Northwind and others.  The directory on my machine is E:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\SDK\v2.0 64bit\Samples\Setup, but I figure it'll be under the Samples\Setup of wherever you happen to have the 2.0 SDK installed.   Ahh.. pubs.. dear old friend...

Or download pubs / northwind from here. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=06616212-0356-46a0-8da2-eebc53a68034&DisplayLang=en

Simply extract the dbs, then 'attach' them using SQL2005.

Of course, a guy who's boat is named ALFKI needs pubs!

Seems like a lot of work. I just ran a script. :-p
