Default connection string issues, web.config file issues

Guys I have just started learning about data access from the asp.net website's quicktutorials. I am running into some issues which I can't resolve at all, For anyone willing to help, you'll have to check out the following links coz that is where my query stems from, http://quickstarts.asp.net/QuickStar...databases.aspx

1. In the very first exercise 'Creating a Data report' and its corresponding 'view source files', http://quickstarts.asp.net/QuickStar...ng=C%23+Source

 I can't grasp the nuances of the web.config file and how it has been constructed because it has not been explained anywhere at all.

2.I am setting up a simple query on my .aspx file, which is the same as the last link and simply copy-pasting the web.config file, but an error is occuring that reads 'login failed for the user sa'. I have supplied the same password for it in the smart tag settings as I do when connecting to a database, so I guess there is nothing wrong here but something to do with the web.config file, anyone willing to explain the nuances of the web.config file to me and what exactly should be my procedure in getting this query done, thanks a lot!!!
