Is the sql server database on the same server?  Log into management studio and verify "SharePoint_Config_29c26fca-17b8-48c1-9704-b869932abcb6" exists.  If it's on a separate server it could be a network related issue.

Thanks.  Since it's SBS 2008 it is on the same box.  I'll check that out.

Looks like you installed SharePoint using the built-in SQL Express.  If you don't have Management Studio installed, download it from here http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=7011.  You will then use it to connect to the SQL instance used for SharePoint.  Then look under "databases" for the SharePoint_config database.

That's correct.  I'm using MS SQL Server Management Studio Express which came with the product.

It lists System Databases and SBS Monitoring databases.  Is the SharePoint_config database stored there?

SharePoint uses a customized version of SQL Express called Windows Internal Database.  You can connect to it by using the following as the instace name to connect to in Management Studio:
\\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query

Have you changed any passwords recently?  Check the credentials of the Application Pool that the SharePoint website is using.  If it's using one that isn't predefined, make sure they're correct.

Also verify the service account you created and are using does not have an expired password or is locked out.
