I've trying to install the hacme bank application to practice some web app pentesting...and the website says that all you need is xp, and dotnet1.1 from microsoft...the installation goes well the only problem is when I try to configure the sql server authentication, I get an error that is not finding the server...my question is do I have to install sql server? or am I using wrong authentication..Ive tried pretty much everything from the sa account with blank password to the windows authentication, also tried localhost in the computer/server fild, I found a solution googling around in which this person enter computername\SQLEXPRESS in the computer field.....tried that too and didn't work...if someone here could help me out ;0)

thanks in advance
