Help..using sql server 2000

Hi, I’m quite inexperienced with SQL Server 2000 but I have to develop a project on it for my job using VB.NET my problem is the following : I have created a DB using sql server at work then, i backed up the DB and took it home to continue the work at home so i restored the Db and when i ran my project from my personal computer it gave me an error message whenever i try to open the connection with Sql server and the message was login Failed for the user by the way the sql server is in the local machine at work and at home so the Data Source=(local) in both cases. So, Please Help me….
