I'm going through the setup for CRM Server 3.0 on SBS Premium with SQL 2000.
I'm creating a default website for the CRM server as specified in the MS CRM Implementation Guide

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/mscrm/mscrm12/deploy/15_sbs03.mspx

The instructions say...
---------------------------------------
6. From the Enter the IP address to use for this Web site drop-down list, select the IP address of the Microsoft CRM server and click Next.

Important   If there is more than one Web site in use (such as Default Website, Microsoft CRM, and Small Business Server Manager), the Microsoft CRM Web site must have an IP address associated with it. Do not use All Unassigned IPs for the Microsoft CRM Web site. The IP address used should be the same as the server IP address.
------------------------------------------

I have to select the IP address of the Microsoft CRM server... what should I choose the public or private IP and what Host Header should I use?

Installing and Configuring Microsoft CRM
Create a Web site

For Microsoft CRM, we recommend that the Web functions of the Microsoft CRM server are not installed at the default Web site.  These steps create a new Web site that can be used to install the Microsoft CRM Web components.

1.
 On the Start menu, point to Administrative Tools and click Server Management.
 
2.
 Expand Advanced Management, and expand Internet Information Services.
 
3.
 Right-click the Web Sites folder, point to New, and then click Web Site.
 
4.
 On the Welcome page, click Next.
 
5.
 Give the Web site a description, and then click Next.
 
6.
 From the Enter the IP address to use for this Web site drop-down list, select the IP address of the Microsoft CRM server and click Next.

Important   If there is more than one Web site in use (such as Default Website, Microsoft CRM, and Small Business Server Manager), the Microsoft CRM Web site must have an IP address associated with it. Do not use All Unassigned IPs for the Microsoft CRM Web site. The IP address used should be the same as the server IP address.
 
7.
 On the Web Site Home Directory page, click Browse to browse to a location where the site will reside. For example, use C:\Inetpub\CRM for the location. Choose Make New Folder to create the Microsoft CRM folder. We recommend that the Web site be installed on a non-system partition, that is, one that doesn't contain the Windows operating system installation.
 
8.
 Click OK to close the Browse For Folder dialog box.
 
9.
 Clear the Allow anonymous access to this Web site check box and click Next.
 
10.
 Click Next and then click Finish.

Hi Matrix1000,

You are reading the WRONG deployment guide.  That's for CRM 1.2, not 3.0!  

Please see this link for the proper guide:  http://www.microsoft.com/dynamics/crm/using/sbeguide.mspx
