Creating a Network Dataset from a Created Topology

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to create a Network Dataset using both a road subset source and business point location source, and then in turn build the dataset. Through the process of building the dataset I get a messege that reads that it builds, but with some errors. The errors are for standalone features and hierarchical errors.
I am under the impression that I need to create a topology and then create the Network Dataset from that created topology with the exempted errors applied. (I used the point must be covered by line, must not have dangles, and must be single part topo rules.)
I have built the topology and am now trying to create a new Network Dataset from that topology but am having trouble figuring out how to do so? When I get to the part of the wizard where I would select the sources to be used, the topology is not an option. Also, I cannot right-click and create the Network Dataset from the topology directly in ArcCatalog?
Am I missing something simple here? Any help would be appreciated!
