Logging to Sandbox DB environment ?

I am using Sandbox for the first time and have trouble logging into it, I can login to the DB by using production id/password through sforce explorer or even Apex Data loader. When I try to login to the site it gets me in without any issues. Though when I try to login to sandbox by using name@company.com.(sandbox) I get an error saying username/password invalid or locked out. Can some help me with this. Thanks
Are you sure the sandbox is done copying and activating?  Go to the sandbox settings in your production instance, if it's ready there should be a login link right there.
Well learnt it myself... Changed the url where www.salesforce.com to something like custom.salesforce.com. It is same url given when salesforce activates sandbox. Thanks anyways.
