    I'm testing the login, profile, and other components within ASP.NET 2.0. I
    see by default it uses SQL Server 2005 Express, which I have installed on my
    PC. I also have SQL Server 2005 Developer. What do I need to change and
    run in order to point the provider to my SQL 2005 server instead of Express?
    I noticed the WebAdmin page for ASP has a "Provider" tab, but it only has
    one radio button. I was under the impression that I could edit the provider
    and point the data somewhere else.

    If someone would please show me the error of my ways --

    Thanks -- I did this... but how to I make my application use this now? I
    see the database is created... but its still using SQL Express.

    Do I have to change my web.config or something?
