I am upgrading to SBS 2003 Premium this weekend and I have found the following resources:  - Windows Small Business Server 2003 with service Pack 1 getting started guide. - Small business server 2003 Resources

I also have the :
Window Server 2000 resource kit
Small Business Server 2000 Resource kit
Windows Server 2003 Resource kit

My question is this: I am going to install SBS 2003 for the first time, what tips, gotcha's, resources, guides, Problems that others had, etc could you provide me with so this upgrade goes incredibly smooth, and if not I would have the resources to fix quickly.
