  1. You can download the SQL Server 2008 Native client from the DumpISO of SQL Server 2008 from the location

    D:X64SetupX64 (D: is the letter of the DVD Drive)

    The name of the file will be sqlncli.msi

  2. I did a search on the Microsoft Download Center, searching for "SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack".  I did see links to several different SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack pages, but many of the links did not work.  Hmm, I need to look into why so many of these pages are no longer available.

    But, I found one that is still available:
