I just aquired the SAS 9.3 server software and license. I would like to know the proceedure to setup a workstation (classroom computer) to run SAS 9.3 from a Windows 2008 server. What installations I need to do and settings to SAS and Windows 2008. Does someone have documentation for this? Is it possible?

There are two options for using a SAS Server from a workstation (assuming a SAS server has already been set up) :
1) Enterprise Guide, SAS's thin client software for working with a SAS server.
2) Foundation SAS, a "full" SAS desktop solution and SAS's fat client software for working with a SAS server.
Either way you need to request request the appropriate software and licence from SAS.
You appear to be confusing "server SAS" with "workstation SAS". Each version requires a different software install package and a different licence.

Are you at a university or college? SAS On Demand for Academics may be the ticket. It doesn't work for identified medical data (HIPAA), but is nice in a direct learning environment.
