upgrade box from SBS2003 to Windows2003

My client has merged with another business

We have plenty of full server 2003 licenses

The small server in one office was running SBS2003, but not using exchange

I want to upgrade it to full version of windows 2003 so that I can set up a domain trust between the office's over the VPN

Can I use the Corporate Edition 2003 Standard windows server CD to upgrade, by installing over the top of SBS2003?

Whats the best path for least pain?

There is no direct upgrade path from SBS2003 to Server 2003 in any version.

You'll need to buy the Transition Pack to remove restrictions on SBS or format and install new with your copies.

I know it says R2, but it should still be available for R1.
