Default SQL server 2000 developer Edition on XP Pro


I installed SQL server 2000 developer Edition on XP Pro SP1 but I can't connect to SQL server, I've already have this message :" A connection couldn't be established, the server doesn't exist or access is denied ". This message appears from each sql programs (odbc, server manager, dos...) . My server name is my computer name.
I don't know if my system XP is well configurated to work in server mode. How can I do to configurate XP to work on server mode ?

Did you setup SQL to use local system account.

go to your services and check the mssqlserver and the sqlserveragent are both run using local system account. Also check your connectivity and use tcp\ip.
