I found out that I need to buy more licensing for our sbs2000 server. Also that I need to get a floppy disk from MS, when I called MS fulfulliment center they were saying I needed a receipt of my purchase or something. So do I need to buy a 2k3 small business server CAL from say here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832102511&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-Software+-+Licenses-_-Microsoft-_-32102511 
then when that arrives call that 800 # from MS and order a floppy disk for each 5 cal set?

Yes you need to order the SBS 2003 Cal's and then send the MS Fulfillment centre the proof of purchase and they will supply some SBS 2000 Cals on floppy disks.

Thanks Wayne, One final question on this for you. Will it speed up the process if I order Next day air shipping from newegg. Or just take the ground shipping and when they ship them just print out the online invoice and then fax that to MS and have them AIR out the floppies? THANKS!!!!!!

When I did it I faxed through the invoice to MS and they shipped out the floppies to me in about 5 days so as long as you have a copy of the actual invoice from newegg then you can fax it through.  If they send you the invoice via email at the time you order then ground shipped will suffice.

Just FYI for everyone make sure you get the RETAIL Cals I accidently ordered the OEM cals and had to send them back.
