I installed SQL Server 2008 Express. But I don't have any SQL Database engine to connect the management studio to ?  I can't get the studio to accept the AdventureWorks MDF files either?

After downloading and installing SQL Server Express 2008. I can't get started. The managment studio wants to connect to a Database Server but I haven't created one yet .. And I don't know where I went wrong or what to do?  I downloaded the AdventureWorks DB files, but the Management Studio won't import them either.. Stuck..
