Default can't connect to Northwind

my Server Explorer looks like this (Bliss is the name of my computer):

Data Connections
        SQL Servers
            Bliss (i assume this is the MSSQL Server 2000 server)
            Bliss\VSDotNet (i assume this is the MSDE server)

Bliss has the Northwind and pubs databases listed.
Bliss\VsDotNet does not have the Northwind and pubs databases listed.

i want to use MSDE rather than MSSQL Server 2000, since MSDE will be embedded in the finished application.

How can i connect to Northwind using Bliss\VSDotNet?
