Are you installing GP9/GP10? In GP10 during the installation it provides you the option to automatically create ODBC connection. The default name is "Dynamics GP".
If it is GP9 you can create manual ODBC and point to your SQL Server.
Also, if it is 64-bit OS, make sure 32 bit ODBC is created.

GP data will be stored in SQL Server databases.

You need SQL Server.
