All is working fine except for this
in the data explorer under More Data Sources, I dont have an option for MS SQL as i do on any regular desktop, It is weird because I have it installed on another farm and it is in that data explorer.

On the install for SQL Server, one of the options is to install just the Client Utilities.  I believe you need to install this in order for MS SQL to be available under More Data Sources.

Yes that is correct.  As a warning though, if you choose to use the MS SQL connection you will need to have client licenses for MS SQL for all users who wish to display the report.  An alternative is to use the OLE connection to MS SQL and distribute the Crystal OLE driver.
