User and Device CAL usage for SBS 2003 R2

A client of mine just purchased a New DELL with SBS 2003 R2 preinstalled. It came with 5 User CALs. He then purchased 15 more but got device CALs . Is there a way to manipulate the combination of User and Device CALs so all of his office workers can access the server and use email? He has a total of 18 users who logon to the network from the same PC.

Thanks,

Frank

Actually, the INCLUDED CALs are not "USER" specifically... they can be either.  But even so... if he has 18 users who logon to the network from the same PC then that's exactly what DEVICE CALs are for.  

Technically, you can have both USER and DEVICE CALs on your server, it can just be confusing some times... but if its the original 5 + 15 DEVICE CALs, then I wouldn't worry about it... all should be fine.
