I just installed sql server on a new pc and it works fine but when i try to edit the db on my server using the management console Ii get a message that says I can not edit the table.  Is there a setting somewhere that i need to change so that I can do that?  I believe I had that capability on my old machine.

It could be a couple issues.  Open SQL Server Configuration Manager and make sure TCP/IP is enabled under protocols.  You may also need to turn on the SQL Browser service.  It is probably disabled; set it to auto and start it.  You will have to restart the SQL Server service after enabling TCP/IP.

Did that...didn't seem to work.  It says I may have enabled "Prevent Saving Changes."  Where can I find that setting?

You can set a database to read-only but I'm not sure I've ever heard of the prevent saving changes setting...
