I need to create an intranet for use within our WAN, the main components I want to include are a message board and a document upload/download section.  I plan to install and host the intranet on a Windows 2003 Std. Server, other servers within the organisation are made up of SBS 2003 and Std. Server 2003.  External users in remote offices will also need web access to same.  I'd appreciate suggestions on what software to use to create it and any other relevant information r.e. making it available online etc.  Thanks
