How do I change permissions in SQL Server Express 2005

When I try and create a new database in SQL Server Express 2005 I get the following error message:

CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master'. (Microsoft SQL Server Error: 262)

And when I chnage the Server permission of 'Create any database' i get the following error:

Grantor does not have GRANT permissions (Microsoft SQL Server Error: 4613)

Sounds like your login doesn't have DDL permissions. Can you get someone to run the script for you or give you the necessary perms?
