MYSQL express 2008...

Hi Everyone

I have installed Visual Web Developer 2008 and notice that on the install it no longer gives the option for you to include integrated SQL in the download, as a result, when I go to 'Website' tab in VWD and then 'ASP.Net configuration', when clicking on the 'Security ' option, it makes it quite clear that it cannot find the mysql database. Presumably because its no longer part of the VWD 2008 install, so I install SQL express 2008 only to find:
a) I cannot open it as a program, it just gives a 'configuration' option in my start menu and is not a program I can physically open up and work with
b) I am yet to define the location of this so called database in VWD via web.config but until I work out SQL Express 2008 (with which I have no experience at all) I cannot proceed with my web based tutorials

Microsoft SQL Server Express 2008 is not MySQL.  Two different products.  Install the Microsoft SQL Server Express Management Studio to work with SQL Server directly.

I'm sure I'm destined not to get this remote server/database up and running, I've attempted to install Windows Server 200-KB942288-v4-x86.exe (as i'm using Windows Vista Premium 32-bit Operating System) and when I try to do so, the Setup Error window appears with the message 'Not enough storage to process this command', I press OK and the next Setup Error window says the installation did not complete. I have more than enough storage space so am very unsure about how to rectify these errors and how I can continue.

Would I be better to delete everything and start again using the Microsoft web Platform installer?

 I dont see why the option to download a pre-configured SQL database was removed from the Visual Web Developer install, it has to be said
