You probably want the SQLEXPRWT version for your OS, so depending on whether you're using 32-bit or 64-bit, choose one of these:

ENU\x86\SQLEXPRWT_x86_ENU.exe
ENU\x64\SQLEXPRWT_x64_ENU.exe

They include the database engine and basic tools like Management Studio, so it's what I'd consider to be the minimum install for a server. You may also want to install the additional tools package, but it's not necessary to get rolling.
