[Emerald] MS SQL 7 question

Hi all, just a quick question, I originally set up Emerald/RadiusNT with a
120-day demo version of MS SQL server that I downloaded from MSDN. I have
since purchased the full version of MSSQL after having evaluated and bought

My question is this: Do I have to uninstall the 120-day demo SQL 7 and lose
the databases contained therein and reinstall with the full version of SQL
7, or is there a way to tell MSSQL that I have the full version now? I ran
the install program from the CD, but it found nothing it needed to install,
so i can't tell if it affected the one running or not. Is there a place in
the one running to tell it I have the full version with the CD-key or
something like that? If I indeed do have to uninstall/install, is there
anyway to keep from losing the data I already have?

Any comments/suggestions/pointers to documentation etc welcomed.

two lists will have done what I am talking about before.
