One-way External Trust between 2 domains w/ Windows 2003 SBS & standard

I have 2 domains, I can see them both on the network and everything works fine.

I tried to create a one-way external trust from domain A to domain B. (Domain B trusts domain A, but domain A does not trust B) The domain A DC is Windows 2k3 for Small Business Server and B is 2k3 Standard.

I setup the trust on DC B first and then tried to add it on the A but it displays the following error message:

This operation is not supported on a computer running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server.

Any idea whats wrong and how I could get it to work?

Sorry, you won't be able to get it to work. SBS won't let you create trusts.

Q. Can I use more than one Windows Small Business Server 2003 server in the same company?
A. There can be only one Windows Small Business Server 2003 server in a domain. Each Windows Small Business Server 2003 server is typically connected to the Internet either directly, or via a firewall. Windows Small Business Server 2003 does not support trusts between domains; therefore, user names and resources could not be shared between those Windows Small Business Server 2003 servers. Further, Windows Small Business Server 2003 installs at the root of the Active Directory forest, and it cannot be demoted, or have the flexible single-master operation (FSMO) roles removed.
