How easy is it now to build a web-based SQL database and front-end input forms & queries?

It's been over 5 years since I built a SQL databse with ASP.Net pages using Visual Studio 2002 I think. But now I'm wondering how far ASP.Net development has come in terms of ease of development.

I'm just wondering what might be the easiest tool(s) for me to use to build a simple web-based database. I'll be using this particular database for storing computer specs for client PCs and servers if anyone's curious.

I've downloaded and am trying out the free VWD 2008, which looks like it might be all I need for this simple solution. Thanks for any helpful input.

With the servers alreayd setup I have done basic stuff (simple inventory management) in asp.net using vs2k8 in just over an hour.

It really depends on the infrastructure you have, your skill and of course the size of the app your want.

This is all being done on my laptop on the local file system for now. I'll port it later to IIS on Windows Server 2003 or rebuild it if needed. I'm beyond intermediate level skill-wise; it's just been years. How do I create the databse I want to use? I've got MS SQL Server 2005 installed on my laptop but it appears to be some sort of an Express version that I installed with VWD 2008 Express (free) edition. I can't figure out how to create a database with it.
