    1. To install Sql Server Mobile on your device, just create a project in VS2005 for your type of device and include this in the programs.cs file:

    using System.Data.SqlServerCe;

    This will install the necessary components on your device.
    You'll need to make a reference in your project to System.SqlServerCe too...
    Hope that helps a bit. Haven't tried to really manually install the sql server.

    2. Yes. but keep in mind memory and performance restraints on handheld devices, and storage capacity.
