    have a look at and follow the links on from that page for a description of the main differences.

    There are loads, but the underlying OS is much the same (Server 2003) so things like DNS settings, the .local issue etc are uniform across the two.

    This guide is written specifically for SBS, and I was really pleased to find a Microsoft whitepaper like this which was comprehensive, detailed and still simple! Maybe our definitions of simple are slightly different :-)
