NT\Authority... is for my local connection, since there will not be an actual connection to any external servers, just my local machine.  Can I use the full version of Sql Server 2008 R2 Developer on my local machine?

Thanks for the link, it was the one I was using for the installation, I am still unable to connect.

How do I change this since I have already completed the setup/install by changing the Automatic to Manual?

do the below steps:

1. Start---All Programs---Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2------then select SQL server configuration manager
2.Select the SQL services --- in the right side window all the list of services belongs to SQLserver
3. for Example for SSIS ...select the SQL Integration services--Properties --select Service tab---in the "Start mode" drop down you can select the options.
