SBS Installation Options

When I install SBS it asks me if I want to install Client Development. In all honesty, I use the Server Management console to add PCs but don't install any applications on to the PCs such as services packs and what not because this is what I have WSUS for. Therefore can't I just exclude this option from the installation or will something else break?

I'm reinstalling my server now, so any help before I get the option would be much appreciated. :)

Thanks for your reply, but that's not really what I was referring to. I wanted to know if it was OK to "not install" the Client Deployment on the initial setup of SBS.

Hi DReade83,

No it is not!
I had the same idea on my last installation, where the SP language was different on the server then on the clients.
The client installation is NOT done untill you finished the client deployment installations.
Policies are not applied untill you have XP SP2 on all the clients etc.
You can'(t postpone the SP installation.

Cheers!
