I'm trying to figure out whether I need to purchase windows server standard or small business.  From Dell, the small business is cheaper, but I need to be able to log onto the server via desktop sharing.  I have another customer with sbs and I"m able to log onto that one, but Dell says you have buy licenses to do that and be using standard edition.  I'm confused.

Thanks

SBS has almost all the abilities that standard server does EXCEPT:
1.  You cannot create Trusts
2.  You cannot use it as a terminal server for multiple users (non-admins).  You CAN connect with Remote Desktop and manage the server with up to three 3 connections (two Terminal Sessions, one console, JUST LIKE standard server).
3.  You have a MAXIMUM of 75 users
4.  You cannot move the FSMO roles off the SBS server - you CAN have as many other DCs and servers as you want, but you CANNOT move the FSMO roles.

Hi
You can remote connect to the server, but don't use Terminal server (for that you need some CAL), use instead remote desktop (2 connection for free, equivalent of Terminal server in Administration mode for 2000 server)
