SBS 2003 R2 Install Sequence for Premium and R2 Technologies

When installing SBS 2003 R2, when is the correct time to install the Premium and R2 Technologies?
I have the R2 DVD which is basically like 8 CDs in one. However, after installing the SBS standard files I have not been prompted to install the other applications. I have already gone through the ToDo list and windows updates. I'm not even sure which of the following CDs are installed as part of the standard installation.
I would like to install SQL, R2 technologies, WSUS and possibly ISA. The autorun blurb (below) says that disk 1-5 are installed automatically.


Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition consists of eight discs:
Discs 1-5 comprise Windows Small Business Server 2003 Standard Edition with Service Pack 1.
Installing the R2 Technologies CD and the additional Premium Technologies CDs will result in a complete install of Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition.
R2 DVD Disc Contents
 Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition CD1
 Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition CD2
 Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition CD3
 Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition CD4
 Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition - Office Outlook 2003
 Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition - Premium Technologies Disc 1
 Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition - Premium Technologies Disc 2
 Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 Premium Edition - R2 Technologies CD

I really appreciate that list of the R2 DVD Disk contents... Thank you!  Trying to install SBS tonight and the install couldn't find the Outlook 2003 cd, no matter what disk I put in.  I was able to point it to the location you listed on the DVD (cd 5) and it took right off.  Thanks again!!
