SBS SQL Install help for MS CRM 3.0 please!

I'm to the point where I'm installing SQL 2000 to make it ready for MS CRM 3.0 and I'm not sure abot the 'Services Accounts' form.

I'm confused by this... In the MS  'Completing Setup for Microsoft Windows Small Business Server Premium Technologies'   document  it says

On the Services Accounts page, you can use the default of Use a Domain User account, and then specify the password for your administrator account. Optionally, an even more secure method is to create a new account specifically for accessing SQL Server.

BUT  in the CRM installation Guide says...

"The service account that SQL Server uses to log on to the network must be either a local system account or a domain user account. Installation of Microsoft CRM will fail if the SQL Server service account is the local administrator."

The Services Accounts form says
1. Use the same account for each service. Auto start SQL Server Service
      a. Service Settings
           1. Use the Local System account
           2. Use a Domain User account.
                Username: Administrator
                Password: _____________
                Domain: mydomain

What should I choose?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You do not have to install SQL under the administrator account. You could use any other account with administrative rights.
that will therefore use that account.
Now for the SA password It is really up to you just make sure the password is strong.

Good luck!
