My question is about some options for managing a network with a SBS2003 Server tha I want to learn to use.

I finally cleaned up the domain users so everyone has a logon of their own, etc.  Now I want to see if I can manage all the computers on the domain from the server.  For example:  In server management -> manage client computer, there is an option for remote controlling qany computer on the network.  Please let me know what the minimum requirements are to make this work.  Do you have to setup the client just like a regular remote desktop client?

Finally, I would also like advice on the best way to manage the updates of the server and the 25 systems.  Can that also be done from the consoles in the SBS Server.  This is all ideal because I have remote access to the server, but don't want to setup remote access through the router directly to all clients obviously...but if I could remote access them all through the server, I could at worst, manually update system if I can't automatically do it with the server.
