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?

Using the farm option?

When I do the farm option it automatically install SQL 2008 express and it does not give me an option to change that.

I figured it out, you have to do a complete server farm. You can then specify a location of the SQL server

Does not provide all the information, you need to run it with the server farm option with the complete install.
