In Administrative Tools open DNS. Right click your current domain name. For example: test.com. Select New Domain. Enter the new sub-domain. For example new1. The new sub-domain will be new1.test.com. You can add new records in this sub-domain. Repeat this for a second sub-domain.

Is this the kind of subdomain users can logon to?

In general terms, to create a child domain, you will have to purcahse a new server, install Windows Server on it (NOT SBS) and run dcpromo to make it a domain controller.

I suspect from your question that you want to add more domains, all hosted on your existing server. This is impossible, each domain has to have it's own server. In addition, I seem to remember that SBS does not allow you to have child domains. I may be wrong on that, but SBS is definitely limited to being the root of the domain tree only - it can never be a child domain.
