Trying to set up a data service in VS2010 to use with linq to XML

I'm pretty lost here. I'm trying to setup a Visual Studio program to parse and store XML in a database. The XML is from embedded XMlL files in OpenOffice Word Documents.
I'm doing ok except with the parsing, etc, but getting the data into the database is a problem. The example I'm following says I need to add a server reference.

I'm not sure what database is best to use - compact model, edo, mdf, etc? I wasnt' sure even if SQL was working properly so I upgraded to 2008 r2.
The project no longer allows me to use the compact 3.5 database I had been using as the datasource for the Edo Model Entity object.

I know this is not clear, as I'm very new to this, but sure could use a little guidance.
thanks

With respect, your question is a little convoluted. Can you break down the problem you are having and possibly post any code that is giving you problems?

Yes, thank you kaufmed! "Convoluted" is being kind. ha.
Well. I've been trying all kinds of stuff, trying to learn this stuff.

I basically want to load an SQL database with XML data.
Let me just ask a few basic questions.
Is it ok to use in a VS 2010 project the SQL Server named after my machine? Server = PC-Jody ?

Also I've worked out a few things. I got SQLXML 4 sp1 loaded and in my SQL manager and have been able to create a table with a querry. So that's good. Now I'm trying to run a vbscript I found to upload bulk XML into a SQL server. It seems to be working ok, but it faullters as it doesn't like my connection string.
<objBL.ConnectionString = "provider=.NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Server;Data Source=JODY-PC;Initial Catalog=Briefs;Integrated Security=True"> I've attached the script.

Ok, I got a con. string to work and actually loaded data to a table. So now I'm going to try and adapt my tables to that example.
