Client Server Database

This is probably impossible but... Is there an open source client-server database that I can put on a shared Windows xp server without actually installing it? In other words simply copy up a bunch of files and have it work without going through a standard windows installation involving writing to the Registry etc... Actually i dont even care if its open source as long as it is small and relatively inexpensive. thanks in advance.
