I am going to install an 2.0 application to learn it. They are using sql 2005 but I do not know which version. I have access to all three versions ent, prof, and developer. Which version should I go with. I was thinking enterprise. However I am reading the developer has everything and I can use it as long as I am not going to production with it.

So what should I go with. Developer or enterprise?

It depends on what you are licensed for, but I would install Developer edition. It's basically Enterprise edition but for a developer. And the Developer edition license is pretty cheap.
