Probably a dumb question but...

New to .Net programming so this is probably a dumb question but here
goes..Is it possible to install VS2005 directly on a PC running Windows
Server 2003? If possible, I was planning on developing and deploying on the
same machine since I can't do a dual boot and deploy from say, an XP
partition to a Server partition.

I'm stuck using one PC for both development and deployment.

Are there any steps I should take to ensure my code is secure since my app
will be internet facing? I was going to "build" the app using a localhost
and then deploy to my local machine. Any help would be appreciated.

VS2005 will run quite happily on Windows Server 2003.

If you have the RAM, a virtual machine of some description is a good
solution to that problem.

That's rather a large subject area, but I think a good starting place is
"don't trust anything from the remote client".
