SAS Institute licenses various components of the SAS System to users directly
and the fees vary depending on the number of licenses and the target platform.
I would suggest reviewing their web site for a contact in your area. Also,
your e-mail address I assume you are at the University of Wisconsin (UW)? If
so, I would quess that UW already has licenses for the SAS System and I would
try to find the UW SAS site representative, maybe at the campus computing
center. Also the SAS Institute representative for UW could tell you who to
contact at UW for more information.
Hope this is helpful.......
