VISTA & SQL Server Management Studio Express

OK, I have vista and installed SQL 2005 with Server Management Studio Express. I logged in as "Windows authentication" and tried to create a database but get an error saying "CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master'. (Microsft SQL Server, Error: 262)"
Grrr... I have done this with XP many times but now with VISTA it does not work. What could be wrong and what can I do to resolve this issue?

I like them but there is a noticeable lag time when I access it.
The SQL Server management interface sucks. It's a web form where you have to copy/paste your stored procs in. Not a good development environment, minimal flexibility. It doesn't maintain indentations or do anything remotely similar to the Management Studio.
Is it worth it for me to upgrade to Windows Server that I host? So that I can run SQL changes from my machine? Plus I'm tired of drilling into their multiple layers of logins that timeout after a period
