To facilitate the new SQL Server articles and scripts on the
website, all of the examples are based on the AdventureWorks 2008R2 sample 
databases. These sample databases are part of the "AdventureWorks Community 
Sample Databases".

The following sample databases are available as part of the AdventureWorks 
Community Sample Databases for SQL Server 2008 R2:

    * AdventureWorks OLTP 2008R2
    * AdventureWorks Data Warehouse 2008R2
    * AdventureWorks LT 2008R2

Starting with SQL Server 2005, the sample databases are not installed by 
default due to security concerns. Users are now required to download and 
manually install the sample databases after successfully setting up SQL Server.

The following article presents the steps required to download and install all
