I want to install sqlserver 2008.

Presently I'll only use it locally along with vs2010 for web development.

Some day I may look for a host to put it on the web but not for a while.

My questions are:

1): Should I install a default or named instance?

2) What is the advantage of each?

3) Got any other advice?

Thanks
