If you really need sql server with a publicly hosted site, then you
can't use a Xen (unix only) based VPS.  Windows hosting is a whole
different area.  Rimu doesn't even do windows - they want to stick
with what they are great at.  I don't know about the windows
non-dedicated hosting offerings, i looked briefly a while back, there
were not many and they were more expensive, and of course not the
equivalent of Administrator/root access (as you get with Xen).
