Standalone Server - No Domain

Is this expected to work on a standalone server with no domain using MSDE, i.e. without a real database server?

Nope :) It was designed solely for a domain environment, with an existing SQL server (either on-box, or separate). Not sure what value it would provide in a stand-alone config anyways (since you likely wouldn't care about standardized database names, credentials, or User Profiles). I personally have no use for a standalone install without domain, but now you've got me thinking about how (or how little) work it would be to modify the process for standalone. I know you could say goodbye to things like Profile Sync obviously, not sure what else would need to change though.
