What are the options and the requirements to upgrade a server from SBS 2000 to Windows 2003 standard?
Is the license upgrade from SBS 200 to SBS 2003 Cheaper than SBS 2000 to Win2003 Stand?

You cannot upgrade from Small Business Server to regular Windows Server, they are completely different products and the upgrade path is not supported by Microsoft. You will instead need to migrate from your existing SBS domain into a new Windows Server 2003 domain.

Check out www.sbsmigration.com, which is maintained by a member of the SBS community and may help to step you through what's required here.

Hope this helps.

You can upgrade from SBS to server std/enterprise, you need to use transition CAL's to do so however.
