I have got a brand new Windows 2003 R2 server. I am trying to install SMS 2003, but under the setup options the only option that I can choose is 'Install the SMS Administrator console and related tools'. I want to choose 'Install an SMS primary site' but this option is greyed out along with the others?

Why is this?

Do I need to join my SMS server to a domain?

Yes the machine has to be a member of the domain.  It also may not work with a release candidate of 2003.
