    Accepted Solution

    SBS is a domain environment, Home Edition cannot be joined to a domain environment.  You can still use home edition, but many of the client features SBS provides won't be there -

    *Logon scripts won't run
    *Users cannot logon directly to the domain; they will be prompted for a password when connecting to the server
    *Management capabilities on the home machines will not be available.
