Default MSDE, how create database, user account ???

Hi, I am new to MSDE, I just installed MSDE :
the isallation created a directory :

Then I went to command prompt :
C:\sql2ksp3\setup INSTANCENAME="dbmsde" SAPWD="admin" SECURITYMODE=sql

I restarted the system, I noticed a small icon(like a small computer) in the bottom right next to the clock, when I double clicked it, I got a dilog box called SQL Server Service Manager that has :
Server input
Services input
and start stop buttons.

1)What is the server ?
2)What is the services ? should I create them ? How ?
3)How to create a database?
4)How to create a user account ?

Please your help is apprecited.

Thank you

The server in the connectionstring is probably one of the following:

"(local)\DBMSDE" - That's your instancename
"(the name of your machine)\(instancename)"

2. Don't bother with the services now,you don't need them.

3. and 4.

Go to
http://www.microsoft.com/sql/msde/default.asp and download their

"sql web data administrator"

If you have problems with running it, then go to their forum

They describe all the solutions.

With that tool, you can do all the administration, you wish, and it it is difficult otherwise.

Kind regards
