You want to do this from Delphi code? or with SQLServer's Enterprise Manager?

It depends on the SQL server you are using. If you are talking about MS SQL Server, there are system stored procedures you may use: sp_addgroup, sp_adduser, sp_password. Use GRANT statement to set the necessary permissions to that user.
After adding a new user successfully you have to disconnect and connect as the newly created user. Then execute your CREATE DATABASE and CREATE TABLE statements.

You could also create the database as the first user, add a new user (using SP's above) and then execute sp_changedbowner system stored procedure at the end in order to make the newly created user the owner of that database.

That's what I explained - from Delphi using ADOStoredProc, ADOQuery, ADOCommand components.
