  • This can be done by using an SQLDataSourceEnumerator.
    It returns a data table with all reachable instances of MSSQL 2000 and 2005 on the local network.

    An example is here: Enumerating Instances Of SQL Server.
    The example just prints the reachable instances to console, but you can set the data table returned by the enumerator as the combo's data source.
