Anyone have a more complete todo list for building an SBS 2003 R2 server?

I have both of Harry's books, along with a couple others, but don't think I've seen a condensed list of things to do on a new SBS 2003 R2 server build.  Not how to do each thing, just an extension of the todo list in server management.  Like:

Extend the ability of the exchange store to go to 75GB
Enable IMF on exchange
Turn on / configure VSS on the appropriate drives

What else?

    Hello babaganoosh,

    Most of the information you can find here:
    For the IMF part:
    You can enable VSS when you right click the appropriate drive and configure it.

    I love reading what Vlad has to say... but this isn't really what I was looking for - there's a bunch of best practices things that has to be done to the server once it's built - I just cited 2 I can think of off the top of my head.  Was hoping for a list of other things.

    thanks though!
