I m poor in using MOSS Microsoft Office Share Point. I have web application in ASP using IIS and SQL Server 2005. Now if I have no licence for SQL Server 2005 can I use MOSS as an alternative for SQL Server 2005? Is it possible to create / attach data base in MOSS / MOSS related SQL instance/databases? Is it true that with MOSS we get SQL Server Express Edition included? If so can we also create Jobs / work with SQL Server Agent ? Please  reply to my queries even if it is big foolish question. I could not get exact answer from Google / MSDN.

Software/Hardware used:
SQL Server 2005, Microsoft Office Share Point, IIS

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

No MOSS is not a replacement for SQL Server. MOSS requires SQL Server to function.

Yes MOSS comes with SQL Server 2005 Express Edition. You can download SQL Express edition for free from the Microsoft Website as a separate download.

Jobs to not work within the SQL Agent, as the Express edition of SQL Server 2005 does not include the SQL Agent.

    Mrdenny, your statement is somewhat ambiguous, "Yes MOSS comes with SQL Server 2005 Express Edition. You can download this edition for free from the Microsoft Website." From your statement, someone might be led to believe that SQL Server 2005 Express Edition includes MOSS when it is actually the other way around, that MOSS is distributed with SQL Server 2005 Express Edition.
