Thanks for your posting.
I think the best way for you to install SQL server is to purchase SBS 2003
Premium Edition pack.
Actually, you cannot install SQL directly from the SBS 2003 Premium CD#5
over to the SBS standard since the product keys for both editions do not
match. You have to upgrade to Premium Edition first. To do so, you should
insert the SBS 2003 Premium CD#1 in the CD-ROM, launch the SBS 2003 Premium
Setup and then upgrade your server from Standard to Premium.
The current price to upgrade from Standard Edition to Premium Edition is
$900, see the link below
Of course, you can install a retail version SQL Server on your SBS 2003 STD
server, but you have to buy additional Client Access Licenses (CAL) for it
as SBS 2003 CALs do not cover it. If you go this way, you have to pay more.
So my suggestion is buy the Premium Edition, it is easy to install and will
save your time.
Hope this information will help. I welcome any further questions you might
