Setting MSSQL 2005 timeout = 0 (neverending)

I have a database of about 10 million items, when I try and declare a primary key, it obviously times out. I'm using Microsoft Sql Manager to do this. Any idea how to run a sql query to set the timeout to 0??? Thanks, Chris.

From the application, the API (ADO.NET) will have settings for timeout. From SSMS, there are settings in the Tools]Options area. Please be more specific.
