    Unanswered: MSDE Setup -- Where's the Server?

    I am using to build pages. I finally decided it was time to start using SQL server based code. So, I installed MSDE....or so I thought.

    I have the server Icon in the bottom systray and it's green and seems to be running.

    I have been able to use Microsoft Access' Database Upgrade Wizard to create BB.adp file.

    An in I see a master.dbo connection in Server Explorer.

    But I can't figure out how to access the database via the SQL server. When I right click on Server Explorer....the Create a New SQL database menu item is greyed out.

    My concern is that my installation is not complete and/or I don't know how to locate and verify the server.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
