Using Enterprise edition without license is a against Microsoft license violation policies and you may be fined, better option is to download the SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Evaluation version this is a 180 day trial of enterprise edition, you are safe to use this once you have the for enterprise edition license you can easily do an edition upgrade from evaluation to enterprise edition.
