Quick Question: Client/Server, ACT 2011 Premium and SQL Server

Can you install ACT 2011 on a client machine and have it connect to different SQL Server machine? Or does ACT! has to be installed on the same machine as SQL Server?

 

Please clarify.

With ACT 2011, you can have clients (machines that just need to connect to the main server) running just ACT without SQL. The database needs to be on a machine that has the ACT program and an ACT instance of SQL 2008R2 installed.
