Installing Windows 2003 Small Business Server

Does anyone know any good books that outline the installation process for installing the windows 2003 small business server?  If the book doesn't walk me through every step I am ok.  I am more or less looking for a nice outline and summary to follow.  This server will act as the domain controller.  I would also like it to run the VPN access, sharepoint services, remote workspace, etc.   Thanks!

Don't know of any books per se - I'm sure they exist - I would recommend strolling on down to your local book store and flip through a few to find one you like.

In the mean time, the best way to do it is by practice - in my opinion at least.  Set it up 2 or 3 times as tests, not for production.  It's fairly simple - the most important thing to do is FOLLOW THE WIZARDS.  SBS wants to be setup a certain way - if you follow the wizards, then you'll generally be fine.  

So set it up 2 or 3 times, and the first and possibly second, just mess around and test things. Write down questions... then come back here and ask them.

I am happy with "Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 Unleashed"
but there is also "Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 Administrator's Companion"

>  This server will act as the domain controller
By coincidence both books only cover that situation

It's no coincidence - SBS MUST be a domain controller.  It must be THE FSMO MASTER domain controller.  There is no option in this.
