You'll have to install SQL Server first. You can download a copy of express edition and use it for free. What version are you looking for?

You could download SQL Server 2008 R2 Express from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26729. And install it.
How to install SQL Server 2008 R2: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143219(v=sql.105).aspx.
Then you could use SQL Server Management Studio to connect the instance.
If you have any problem, please feel free to let me know.
