Don't install SQL 2008. Use SQL 2008R2 or SQL 2005. My software ships with SQL 2008R2 and I have had a few problems installing SQL server on home editions of windows due to missing privilieges. The below code has the privileges in question and an article:

#region security token validation
      {
        try
        {
          bool failed = false;
          StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
          using (Process process = Process.GetCurrentProcess())
          {
            Privilege[] checkFor = new Privilege[] { Privilege.Backup, Privilege.Debug, Privilege.Security };
            for (int i1 = 0; i1 < checkFor.Length; i1++)
            {
              Privilege priv = checkFor[i1];
              using (new PrivilegeEnabler(process, priv))
              {
                PrivilegeState state = process.GetPrivilegeState(priv);
                sb.AppendLine(string.Format("{0}: {1}", priv.ToString(), state.ToString()));
                if (state != PrivilegeState.Enabled)
                  failed = true;
              }
            }
          }
          if (failed)
          {
            DialogResult dr = MessageBox.Show(
              "Security tokens SeBackupPrivilege, SeDebugPrivilege and SeSecurityPrivilege are required to install SQL server." + Environment.NewLine +
              "One or more tokens could not be obtained and the SQL installation will likely fail." + Environment.NewLine +Environment.NewLine +
              sb.ToString() + Environment.NewLine +
              @"Further reading: http://blogs.technet.com/b/fort_sql/archive/2009/12/17/installing-reporting-services-2008.aspx" + Environment.NewLine + Environment.NewLine +
              "Would you like to continue the installation?",
              "",
              MessageBoxButtons.YesNo,
              MessageBoxIcon.Warning);

            if (dr != DialogResult.Yes)
              return ActionResult.Success;
          }
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
          MessageBox.Show("Failed to validate security tokens: " + Environment.NewLine + Environment.NewLine +
            ex.GetErrorText(), "", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error);
        }
      }
      #endregion

After that download SQL 2008R2 with tools:
