Using external SQL server for Sharepoint 2010 install

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I am installing a Sharepoint 2010 server and was wondering if its possible in the install to point it to a SQL server on a different server. I have tried but it always wants to install its own SQL server and it does not give you an option to use a different one. anyone else run into this?
