You have integrated security enabled for your SQL Server and do not
have the security mappings setup correctly. The SQL Security Manager
will show you who maps to who. The most common problem for this is
that in the sa mappings, you have your Domain Admins or Administrators
group mapping to SA, and you are in one of those groups.

To properly setup integrated security, create two Groups in the
NT: SQLUsers and SQLAdmins. Map SQLAdmins (and revoke all other groups)
to sa. Then map SQLUsers to normal users.

This is all covered in the SQL 6.5 Administrators companion, Security
