I have sbs and there is a part that allows me to go to the client pc that is on a workgroup and through internet explorer type in the path provided from the server and it does allthe leg work of installing apps, and adding the pc to the domain. My question is when I did the setup wizard on the server I select the user template but after sbs does it work I am noticing that the user profile is not set as a user but as an administrator. can someone please tell me what I need to do to correct this.

I think you are looking at the LOCAL users and groups on the workstation?  That is true that when you use the http://<servername>/connectcomputer wizard and as part of that process select a user to be assigned to that workstation they are made a member of the LOCAL Administrators Group on that machine.  This is not the same thing as being a Domain Administrator.

Some people don't like this to happen and you can easily remove them from that group (see http://sbsurl.com/add for more info).

I don't personally have a problem with it because as a local administrator, they can accept any of the Windows updates that need to be installed.  You can create a Software Restriction Policy to prevent them from installing anything that isn't approved on their machines.
