The Sitefinity DB is created by Nolics ORM and there are no SQL scripts for creating a new DB.
If you are creating a new project you do not need to attach the Sitefinity.mdf file. During the creation of the project you will be asked what kind of the DB you will use. From there you can just specify connection to the server and an empty DB on that server. The Nolics ORM will automatically create the DB Tables and everything that Sitefinity needs. All this of course depends on the matter that the user you are authenticating yourself has sufficient privileges for the SQL Server and the empty DB instance .
Just in case that you are using Windows Server 2008 you need to run the Project Manager in IE instance
that is started with the "Run as Administrator" option.
If you are using the Blank Sitefinity Project once you have mapped the the directory in the IIS you can navigate this address
http://[your domain name]/[you project name]/Sitefinity/Login.aspx
this will take you to the DB settings form.
There is also option to install sitefintiy from Blank project through Visual Studio.
Hope this helps.
