I have also downloaded the ADO.NET_4_SBS_Examples.zip
It is unzipped and there is three folders as the book says.
When I am trying to make a new connection (with SQL Server Management Studio 2008) to the example database, I can ́t find the Database ADOSTEP\SQLEXPRESS(SQL Server 10.0.2531 as the book section ́s "Installing the Sample Database" page 5/11 picture shows. Instead there is SQL server compact (my computer\...my database#21. Where I can find the right database in order to follow the book step by step code writing and testing ???

Did you go through the instructions on page xxi called Installing the Sample Database? It doesn't sound like it from the description of your problem.
Have you installed SQL Server 2008 Express Edition, as noted in the system requirement for the book?
