Actually, a Jet database (.mdb file, which Access uses) doesn't require Microsoft Access at all. It simply uses the Microsoft Jet database engine that should be installed when you install MDAC 2.6 or higher, which is required for ADO.NET anyway. I might be wrong and it might be a separate download (they keep changing all that), but it'll be small and probably already installed because a lot of stuff uses it. That's probably the best database file you could use. With technologies behind it like DDL, you can even create a database from scratch, although shipping a .mdb file with a schema already created would probably be easier (almost like a template from which databases are created).

As far as SQL Server / MSDE go, this would be overkill for a simple checkboox application anyway. This is more for hard-pounding applications that need transactional services (not that a register wouldn't necessarily benefit from that), replication, user authentication and security, etc.). Besides, it's a big install and can be the cause of many headaches - especially for computer neophites.
