I'd suggest reading up on Microsoft SQL Server Compact, or SQLite. Both are embed SQL databases that you can use with your applications without needing to install an actual SQL server.

I'm as sucker for open-source and platform/language independence, and in that way SQLite is the superior choice. However SQL Server, of course, fits very well into the MS product line and may well make things simpler for .Net developers. - I'm not 100% sure exactly how they compare feature vise (it's been some time, many updates ago, since I've used SQL Server this way), so I'm not perhaps in the best position to recommend one over the other. Neither is a bad choice though.
