Help with MS SQL

I'm in no way versed in MS SQL. I have a server running SBS 2003, and on this server is a piece of software that was written by another company that uses MS SQL 2000.  I'm thinking, probably a limited version, or express?  I have looked thru the Programs and cannot find any sort of SQL Server management software.  
   I have instructions from my backup software people to make some changes to my SQL database, to allow the software to run, but they start with accessing the SQL manager....
    My question, how do I gain access to this SQL database?  Is there something I can download to allow me to manage this database? And if so, what are the risks of installing said manager when the database is already installed and running?

 Well I think I managed to answer my own question. A little digging has turned up MS SQL Server Mgt. STudio Express.  For future use I've included this link to the download.
