Installing sql server 2005... I don't understand on the "Service Account Page" how to setup a "domain user account".   What goes in the the fields for username, password and Domain?   What is a Domain?  Is it the server name.  Yes, I'm not a DBA I'm a programmer setting this up on my laptop. :-)

is your computer part of a domain?
yes -> put there the name of the domain
no -> leave that field empty (you could put your computer name there...)

I finally figured it out.  I had to add a user account through windows, then use that user account for my sql server user account.
