Ok. I just got a brand new machine for home use and installed NT 5.0 (beta 2) and SQL 6.5. Everything went smoothly, and SQL is (I believe) installed correctly. Through SQL service manager, I can start and stop the server, but when I try to connect through ISQL/w or Enterprise manager, I get a DB-LIB error saying that the specified server cannot be found or does not exist... I have installed SQL before (though it has been a while) and have never had this problem. There is no networking card installed, but that shouldn't be a problem since I have talked with other people who have done the same thing with NT 4.
do I specify "(local)" or somesuch for the server name? (I'm @ work so can't try it until tonight.)
