Installing SQL 6.5

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.)

Help???

SQL Server installation does not start the services:
MSSQL Server and
SQL Server Executive. You have to start them manually the first time.
You must register the server from server/register and probably you have standard security so... enter sa and no password which is the default for sql server 6.5.
If you can stop and start you should be able to access it. The name of the server is the same as the computer name.
