Did you install the client tools?

What you need is the Enterprise Manager this will enable you to connect to your server, which should be running already in the back ground as a service.

go to your add remove programs click change to sql server and install the client tools

once this completes you should then see in your start menu sql server management studio, this is teh equivalent to enterprise manager in 2000

without the cd then you will struggle as you havent installed the client tools however there is partial way round it but you are going to loose a LOT of functionality

you can download the sql server studio manager express edition from microsoft at

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c243a5ae-4bd1-4e3d-94b8-5a0f62bf7796&displaylang=en

however this doesnt include all the functionaly of the full edition included on your cd

Also if you have lost the cd you probably havent installed the business devlopment studio so you wont be able to write import packages and also you probaly havent installed the database tuning advisor so you wont be able to optimise your databases.

My advice would be find that disk!!
