For development purposes, SQL Server Express is fine. The database you create with it will run on the full version on a web server. You are ready to get started with your site now.

but sql server that came with the web developer 2008 express editin has only two menus.
ie from start -> programs-> sql server 2008 -> configuration tools and import and export data .
In configuratin tools I have three options -> Sql server configuration manager , Sql server error and usage reporting and sql server installation center..
please clarify, whether this is sufficient.
becoz when i tried to establish a database connection it wasnt successful..

You would be advised to get SSMS Express too. You can get that here:
Then you could do worse than spend some time here:
