SBS is a great solution for smaller networks.  It comes with exchange at a great price.
XP home belongs at HOME, never on a network.  USE XP PRO.
AMD and windows had a bit of issue ten years ago but work together VERY well now.  Can't notice any difference between intel and AMD, more of a personal preference (all mine are AMD)

If you create a Windows 2003 Domain, you wont be able to log on to it with XP home, XP home CANNOT log on a domain.

Microsoft wanted to cripple Windows XP Home Edition so that it could not be used on domains, which would force many to upgrade to the more expensive Windows XP Professional Edition simply to join a network domain.

Also, be sure to know the limitations of SBS before preceding.  If you could work within the limitations it is worth the money.
