    I want use sqlserver 2008 express as my database and VB  as my programming language and my application type is windows form application .

    I know this much "i need a sever to host my database " but i don't know what should be the operating system of the server?? do i need a dedicated server running on a network operating system to serve five client or i can do that on Xp ???
