    Only if you have SQL Server on a second server.

    That SQL Server can't then be the free internal database system (Windows Internal Database) because that can only be installed when WSS 3.0 is on a single server (and that can't be Web Edition).

    Instead you can either use *on the second server* full SQL Server (2K, 2005, 2008) or even SQL Server 2005 Express but then you have a 4GB size limit on the databases.

    Yes, you can. I have installed WSS 3.0 with SP2 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=ef93e453-75f1-45df-8c6f-4565e8549c2a) on a single Windows Web Server 2008 without any problems.

    Let me know, if you need any screenshots.
