Using SQL 2005 database with asp

Using SQL 2005

When using access.mbd with an asp website I usually create a database within the web site directory and then create a connection so that the pages can use the database.
I am wanting to use sql 2005 and I am not sure where the database should be placed or how and whether a connection is created.

Can anyone please offer some advice on this, I am finding it difficult to get this from the books I have.

It doesnt matter where you put your sql server. It might be on the same server, or on another machine. You connect to the database using a connectionstring, something like:
connectionstring = "Server=myServer\myInstance;uid=sa;pwd=myPassword;database=myDB"
