Installing Sp2010 on Win7

Having jumped through a hundred hoops, it *appears* that I have finally installed SP2010 on Win7.
Now I run the products config wizard and I am asked...
Connect to an existing farm or create a new server farm.
Well I have no existing so I guess my only option is to create a new one.
I specify the database server (local install of sql 2008 r2 already installed) and the username (mine (admin)) that should be used. Then I get the error that the account specified is a local account and this should only be used for stand alone mode.

Well yep, this is a stand alone box and I want a stand alone install but no part of the setup/config has offered me that choice.

What am I doing wrong?

see when you ran the Installation and configuration wizard that time it ask  (before one step)which type of installation you wanna do ...Standalone or farm level....there you suppose to use stand alone , so it will install sql express edition as windows 7 support for Sharepoint 2010 testing or development purpose ..hope this will help.

It doesn't ask me that (and I thought it would too) as soon as I open the config wizard it asks me where the Db server is and the name of the windows account to use to connect to it.
