Set up MS SQL 2008 as a web service in the same way as MySQL (screenshot attached)

I am trying to install Moodle on my laptop for testing with MS SQL 2008. I am used to working with MySQL were you use XAMP or WampServer which automatically sets up MySQL as a server to use with the site. I am new to MS SQL 2008 and just followed the wizard. It installed fine. I created a new database but I note that it does not seem to be running on localhost etc..

How is this setup?
