I have problems on database connection on MS SQL Server using System
Administrator role. The system is Window XP Pro, which has only Computer
Administrator role, no System Administrator role. Are they same in XP Pro?

Please help. I will appreciate it.

"System Administrator," a.k.a. the "SA" login name is specific to
SQL Server. There is no "SA" for the operating system, per se, although
the OS's Administrator account is equivalent, as far as privileges go.
So, even if you're logged in to the OS as Administrator, you'll still
have a separate "SA" login account for SQL Server. The OS's login
credentials cannot normally be passed on to or used to log into SQL.
