    The invalid sa password is probably showing because the QA or EM can't connect to a vaid local host. If you're installing on XP Home, then you need to install MSDE which usually accompanies ENT versions.

    If you already have MSDE or are installing on XP Proffesional, check if you're using both SQL Server and WIndows Authentication. BTW, it's god to use the dot "." in the server combo box as a habit. It limits the chances of you entering a wrong local host or ambiguous name.
