TCP/IP enabled on SQL server but SIM says still disabled

I'm attempting to run a fresh install of SIM 5.1 SP1. It gets to the DB configuration point but and then tells me TCP/IP needs to be enabled for the SQL server.
There is already a SQL 2005 Express/MSDE installation from WSUS 3.0. I've used the config tool to enable TCP/IP but the SIM install still says its disabled. I've rebooted, etc, no luck. Anyone see this problem before?
