Default server registration problem

Hi all !

I’ve just installed sql server 2000, and want to work on my pc, as a database server,

In the enterprise manager I, I choose the option :

- new sql server registration (under Microsoft sql srvers)

then in the register sql server wizard, I choose my machine’s name as a server,

in the end of the wizard session I’ve got the message :

(*) <machine’s name..> -SQL server does not exist or access denied. Connectionopen (Connect)

I used windows authentication as login.

I really don’t know what to do and why sql server 2000 don’t know how to recognize my computer as a server

If I’ll try to access the properties of the new server I’ll get the next message:

The server \\. Is not known to be running, Are you sure you wish to connect ?

(and while writing yes I’m getting (*) again…)
