How to Determine what SQL Databases are Installed & Running?

Slator asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
How can I determine (for sure) all of the SQL databases (especially MSDE & SQL Express) installed/running on an SBS Premium machine?

I can only see one instance of a database running:  Microsoft SQL Server Workgroup Edition (9.0.4053 SP3) - which is part of SBS Premium.  I have looked around (services, programs, tools, etc.) but only see one instance.

The reason for my question is that (based on a SBS program's configuration), there should be an instance of MSDE installed/running.
