    I've seen a few posts here already of disasters.  Wait for the service pack specifically for Small Business Server.  Even then, do you REALLY want to be first on the block to try out a bunch of Microsoft fixes all at the same time?  I'd say wait a couple of months... let them find the bugs and release patches for the patch before you take the bold step of applying the SP.
