If you already have MS-SQL, and it's free, or paid for with the  
hosting, just stick to what's there. It's all about the support, and  
this is obviously an MS web server. But if you're doing Linux, MySQL  
is the way to go, in my opinion. osCommerce was made with MySQL in  
mind, but the SQL in the code is pretty generic. I'd choose whatever  
the host feels most comfortable with.
