Help setting up SQL Express as Membership Provider (ASP.NET 2.0 beta 2)

[Cross-posted to the ASP.NET Security forum on forums.asp.net, but that
forum is moderated and I really need an answer soon!]
I'm trying to set up a Membership/Role Provider for an ASP.NET 2.0 beta 2
site using SqlMembershipProvider, and am having problems configuring SQL

I'm comfortable with ASP.NET but very new at databases, so please help me
out on the database side!

When I run aspnet_regsql I get this error:

Setup failed.

Unable to connect to SQL Server database.

Details of failure

System.Web.HttpException: Unable to connect to SQL Server database. --->

I'm using the default installation of SQL Server 2005 Express as it was
installed automatically along with Visual Studio 2005. On the third page of
the aspnet_regsql wizard I didn't really know what kind of authentication to
use so I've tried Windows authentication as well as SQL Server
authentication (but what username/password should I use? How do I set up
users for a database that hasn't been created yet?) and get the same error
in both cases.

The SQL Server Configuration Manager shows that "SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS)" is
Running, but "SQL Browser" is Stopped. Under "Protocols for SQLEXPRESS",
"Shared Memory" is Enabled but all others are Disabled.

I don't know where to start in debugging this. All the documentation and
blogs I read about setting up SqlMembershipProvider just say to run the
aspnet_regsql wizard, they don't talk about having to do any kind of setup
or configuration of the SQL Server installation first.

Any help is appreciated! Thank you.
