I was having a a heck of a time trying to run the Server Consolidation Utility on my WinXP SP1 Professional workstation. The problem occured when I tried to create a new project. I kept receiving the error, "The database could not be created."

I couldn't find anything on Novell's site about the error on WinXP. What I did find when I searched on Google were other people using other database problems with a similiar error. To make a long story short, if anyone receives this error, install the MDAC 2.8 from Microsoft.
