POS 2009

Have downlioaded this from MSDN (Certified Partner), printed manuals etc but cannot find anything on system requirements. Will POS 2009 install and work
from a Windows 2008 Server? Will it use either SQL 2005 or SQL 2008 and is there a document outlining how to install it that way. We have a retail store which already has a SQL server installed and want to add POS 2009 to that and then equip the 2 lanes with the 'client side'.
Guidance would be appreciated to help with our planning.

I assume you know that MSDN downloads are not for production usage. Only testing purposes.
If you are a Partner, go to the POS 2k9 page on PartnerSource for more info, http://tinyurl.com/n7mdkl

Hi Jeff
We are aware of the non production usage. We have a very large project coming up which will involve about 20+ Retail shops and we want to learn the product before installing etc.
The reason we asked the questions was POS V2 did not support server - which did cause us some problems.
Thanks for the info anyway. We can now at least get the application installed the way we want to.

Jeff,
Thanks a bunch for this link. I had been looking for information for a while and somehow completely missed this. This is a great resource and I'm downloading it now for testing/learning purposes.
