creating a new sql server 2008 database

Last Modified: 2012-08-13

This is no doubt a stupid question....

I had sql server 2005 installed for ages and have a lot of 2005 databases.

I installed sql server 2008 but can't create a 2008 database, I only have 2005 as an option.

How can I get the ability to create a 2008 version?
