I have an asp site which I am constructing and I have finished the database design and such. Now I want to start connecting to the DB using ASP. This is my first time doing this with SQL server. I keep getting this error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Cannot open database requested in login 'AdultMatch'. Login fails.
/Match/sessionid.asp, line 10

Her is the script that runs this database (its asp):

set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.CONNECTION")
conn.Open "dsn=AdultMatch"
dim UserIP
UserIP= request.servervariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
dim MySQL
MySQL = "Execute sproc_getSID '" & UserIP & "'"
SET ORS = conn.Execute (MySQL) ' creates and executes the recordset
SID = ORS("SID") 'Gets the SID value from the recordset
ORS.Close 'close the recordset
set conn = nothing 'close the connection

I have no idea what is wrong. I have registered the DNS on the system. There is no uname and pwd as far as I am concerned. Does this mean I have to setup a new user in SQL Server? The setting on the systems ODBC is that it connects with "Windows NT authentication using network login ID"

I have no idea on the security issues with SQL and how to set them.

Thanks for any help
