Hello all,

I'd like to do unattend installation for Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite and
SQL Server Express Edition which is included in the media of Visual Studio.
By default setting, SQL Server Express Edition has an instance name,
SQLEXPRESS.  But I want it installed as the default instance.
I think it must be possible by adding some parameters in the unattend file,
but I cannot find which parameter I should add.
Would anybody help me with this?

I know I can do this using regular SQL Server Express which can be
downloaded from ms site, but I'd like to install it with VS2005 at once.
