Achieving merge replication with SQL Express 2005

I wish to achieve merge replication with multiple publisher nodes replicating to a central distributor which merges the data and publishes back out. However, I only have access to SQL Express 2005 with only one license for the full edition. Is it possible to achieve this with what I currently have?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes you can do this, but the machine with the purchased license will need to be the publisher. You can configure it as the publisher, and all the SQL Express machines as subscribers and setup the merge replication to push (or pull) to all of them.
