I recently downloaded and installed SQL Server 2005 Express onto a file server.  Now I am trying to figure out how to start Express in order to create a new database and some tables.

In SQL Server 2000 I used the Enterprise Manager to do my work but there is no equivalent that I can find.

How do I start SQL Server 2005 Express?  What is the name of the program that will allow me to start Express and create databases, tables, stored procedures, etc?

Thank you.
