Installing on Windows w/ SQL Server Backend

I just downloaded the enterprise version of Alfresco to evaluate it, but I'm having a hell of a time getting this bad boy setup on Windows XP with a SQL Server database.

I downloaded the distribution and unzipped it into the recommended directory (C:\Alfresco).  I checked CATALINA_HOME and it points to the correct location.  I manually set JAVA_HOME to a location that I want it to go to.

I start the app just for grins because I want to see if it will fire up.  It does, throws tons of exceptions and spikes the CPU.  Now obviously the part I am missing is getting it pointed at the correct database.  I've seen a couple notes  here and there about the properties for hibernate.  There's no template for the hibernate properties so I'm assuming its bundled in one of the war/ear files.

Where does this file need to go in the tomcat tree for me to use it.
Where can I find a skeletal template that I can muck with to make this work?

Thanks.
