If you are suggesting "upgrading" from Server 2003 to SBS you cannot do an in place upgrade - it has to be a fresh install

Do you need to preserve anything on the existing server ?

If not then just put the CD in the drive, boot to the CD, use setup to re-partition the disks - see http://www.sbs-rocks.com/sbs2k3/sbs2003-2.htm
