do the windows account unser which you are running the install script have a login on the server? As I see NO. First you should get enough privilages to connect and run that script.

usually the windows built in admin account have access to the sql server by default. Add your account to that windows group or change to one of that accounts and run the script...

well, the Northwind db is not for sql 2008 ...

>>any command line tutorial <<
What do you mean?  All you have to do is download and install.  It does not get simpler than that.
