    actually, leyt me elaborate.
    so we got a hosting account. the web host gives us a sql server 2000, but says that they do not give us enterprise manager. I called microsoft, but they said that the only way for me to obtain an enterprise manager is to get the installation cd for sql server.
    so help me understand this - how uncommon is it to have a db being hosted by a hosting company while all you have is a client tool to manage it? if the host provides backups, is it still a very bad idea to not have a local copy of the db engine on my machine and why? and if it is not all that uncommon, then why is there no easy access to enterprise manager?
    i don't understand what to do now.

    i've heard that you can download the demo for sql server 2003 and install just the manager component.
