There are two versions available now for free download that don't 
require any membership

This is a free version of SQL Server 2000. It has some limits on traffic 
and database size and doesn't come with any admin tools. I've found that 
DbVisualizer works ok (this is a free java based database tool) Other 
than the limits it acts exactly like SQL Server so should be fine for 
testing compatibility. The limits are  high enough that it can run a 
live site if the traffic isn't too high. This is something that typo3 
will have to test against since I think typo3 makes a lot of database 
calls per page request.

There is also a version of this for the new Sql Server 2005 at 

This has less limits than the previous version but is still in beta.
