Confusion between Windows Server 2003 and Small Business Server, which one is it?

This is a simple question, but i want to be sure that i am correct. I understand that windows server 2003 and Small Business Server are two completely different systems. The company that i work for has a server and when i bring up the properties window to see what OS it is running it says "Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server Service Pack 1." There have been some problems with DST and i have been the one asked to figure it out. My question is to clarify that we are using Windows Server 2003 and not Small Business Server, is that correct?

I hope the question is clear.

Thank you in advance for any information.

No, you ARE using SBS based on your "properties Windows."

To confirm go to administrative tools there should be an option "Server Management" not "Manage Your Server", open that.
This console is unique to SBS and will show in the top right Windows Small Business Server.
