Using Sharepoint Externally on SBS 2003 Standard:

 I have a client who would like to simply setup an SBS standard box with sharepoint.  He and 4 others would like to be able to access a couple of documents and share a calendar over the Internet.  The unit i will propose is a SBS 03 R2 hardware bundle with 5 cals.  My question is:  Are there any concurrent connectivity limitations with accsesing SBS 2003 sharepoint externally with multiple users?   An associate suggested i quote on Windows Standard but i would like to use SBS 2003 R2 if i can.  Any feedback would be much appreciated.

There is no limit on external concurrent connections as far as i'm aware, but I have several similar setups to the one you mention so it won't be a problem. The best way to publish the site would be to configure a host header on the iis website and create a dns record pointing to that.

There is comprehensive documenation for this at http://sbsurl.com/extranet

However you really should look at either Groove or OfficeLive for this purpose because while there may not be a limit on connections there is certainly a licensing issue for authentication.  Each authenticated user will use a CAL on SBS.  So that's why I suggest looking at the alternatives.
