Small Biz Server 2003 Mess, ...Help!

By kqj237 ·
My job is ocmprised of administering a p2p network as well as my real job of risk analysis. However, last week my boss informed me that we are going to migrate over to MS Small Business Server 2003 by the year end so I'd better "bone up on it". I recently learned that what he meant was that I need to learn it fast because he wants me to install and configure it. Unfortunately, I don't know a thing about it. A friend of mine told me about this site and said I may be able to get some good help here.
So...... is there a step by step process to go through written anywhere on the web that might be able to help me?
Or does anyone know how to do this that can lend me some assistance?

setting up the SBS 2003 is a pretty straight foward process because its wizard run. Once you install SBS 2003 and log on for the first time to the server, your presented with a setup screen which you pick a task such as connecting to the internet, click a link and a wizard walks through the steps of configuring SBS 2003.

The difficult part of SBS is administration. you need at least a working knowledge of DNS, DHCP, WINS, Active Directory, Group Policy, NTFS permissions, TCP/IP, SharePoint Services, Exchange 2003 and if you have the premium edition SQL 2000 and ISA 2004. If your office has remote users and your not running ISA Server, you'll need to understand RRAS, VPN, IPSec.

Note: you should also have a working knowledge of NT backup and/or if your using a 3rd party solution such as Backup Exec for Small Business Server knowledge of those 3rd party programs. Not all backup programs and devices work with SBS. Certance Backup devices appear to backup SBS but in fact do not. Learning this is mostly trial and error and visiting the SBS community newsgroups and boards.
