WSS (Windows Sharepoint Services) 3.0 simple installation uses the Windows Internal Database (for the configuration database, contrent databases). This database doesn't have size limitation. When Search Server Express is installed without having a previous WSS 3.0 installation to extend, WSS 3.0 is installed b by default (Search Server is based on WSS 3.0) but also SQL 2005 Express is installed and the configuration and content databases will be hosted in SQL Express. There is one issue here: SQL Express has a 4 GB limitation.

If you need more space for you content databases, a new WSS 3.0 web application can be created from Central Administration with the content database hosted in the Windows Internal Database. This way Search Server will use SQL Express 2005 and one or more webs will use the Windows Internal Database.
