How to install and start SQL Server Express 2008

We have an accounting database that we are moving on to a new server. The application tha reads this requires SQL Server Express. I installed it from Microsoft on our Server 2008 platfom. I cant seem to connect to it. Is there a step by step walk thru for install and testing it?

Thanks
