How do I know I have SBS 2003 SP1 installed as well as Windows Server SP1?

I have been reading a lot about installing Windows 2003 SP2...  some of these discussions talk to installing SP1 for Windows 2003 Server and SBS 2003 Server SP1

My question is how would I know what I have installed, looking at the properties of my computer shows I am at SP1 but is this Windows Server SP1 or SBS 2003 Server SP1? I have also installed Exchange 2003 SP2 - I am looking to install (via auto update) Windows 2003 Server SP2 and I want to make sure I have all the prerequisites before I do so.

Thanks for you help...

Hi John,

Probably the fastest and most thorough method to check your SBS server for patch levels and for comparison to a 'standard' is to download, install, and run the report from the Small Business Server 2003 Best Practices Analyzer.  The tool downloads/installs in minutes, and a couple minutes after that you'll have a report in hand with recommendations (tool runs in read-only mode, does not make any changes).
