SBS 2003 mostly configures itself, however I partition the disk into 2
and would move the databases.

Watch what you are doing Andrew, SBS is an odd beast....use the wizards
or you run the risk of breaking it. Also if your going to update ite it
to sp1, do a bit of research first. If I was you I would join one of the
SBS groups such as

Subject: [exchangelist] SBS2003 Question

I have a new client who recently bought a company that went under and
the owner had his IT company sell him a IBM enterprise server with SBS
2003 Server. I have seen in the past a few messages in this form that
it's a no-no to install Exchange on the system drive which I clearly
agree, however since SBS is a different breed on it's own I wonder if
the same rule applies?

Also the guys who install SBS 2003 have their MCSE's and so far I have
to say from what I have examined they have a don't a less than half ass
job with configuring the server.

The server has 1 137GB partition with everything installed on it, except
for ISA 2004 server, and has no antivirus, or email
antivirus/anti-spyware on it. (sigh...smirk)
