is SQL server database engine part of the express package? I am a MSgt in the USAF. I am trying to set up SQL server for TCMAX, TCMAX is a software form Snap-on. the SQL has to have the server database engine and the management studio. I downloaded the 2008 express version, but after I installed it I only see the management studio. I am not computer skilled, I am trying to set this server but it is a pain. any help will be appreciated.

While installation you would get one instance name...
Open Management Studio --> You will get "Connect to Server" dialog box --> Select Database Engine Under Server Type
Are you getting any error?
