CRM 4.0 Upgrade Question

Is this configuration acceptable for a CRM 4.0 installation?

1 - Small Business Server 2003 RC2 w/SQL 2005 Workgroup Edition  for use w/CRM 4.0

1 - Windows Server 2003 Std Edition, for CRM 4.0 installation

I need confirmation that CRM 4.0 can be installed on it's own dedicated server within a Small Business Server 2003 RC2 domain, while using the SQL2005 Workgroup Edition instance on the SBS2003 server.

If it is an acceptable configuration, are there any "gotchas" I should be worried about?

The definitive answer on all things to do with installation of the MS CRM server component can be found in the official Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 Implementation Guide
And to answer your question - yes - as long as your CRM application server can authenticate against your SQL Server (in addition to aforementioned service packs and hotfixes) you should be good to go ;)
