Sql Server Domain not showing up when adding users

I have just installed an Evaluation copy of SQL Server 2005. The server name is ccprojectserver and is on the domain webauth. When I log into Sql Server using the webauth\administrator login which is part of the BUILT-IN group in the WebAuth domain and go to try to add a user the only name that shows up in the Location is the server name, which is ccprojectserver. Why isn't the domain showing up. I have tried everything and can not get the SqlServer App to see my domain WebAuth. When I go to the domain controller I can see ccprojectserver registed and joined in the domain but can not add a user into the WebAuth domain. I can only add users that are local to the computer which for example is ccprojectserver\drecy.  Please help.

Did you install when logged in using a domain admin account or as a local administrator..

I installed using a domain account. From looking at other post the Location should say ENTIRE DIRECTORY instead of the actual server name of ccProjectServer when adding a user

After reviewing my inital install, you were correct. I initally installed the Sql Server 2005 logged into the computer instead of the actual domain. Once I deleted the SQL Server install, logged into the computer as a domain user and re-ran the setup the Directory Tree Showed up when I went to add a user. Thanks for the update and follow-up

"After reviewing my inital install, you were correct"

If so, surely my post merits points as it did assist you in troubleshooting the root cause of the issue?
