I am trying to setup my company's intranet on Windows SBS 2003 R2, when i click on the My Company's Website in the welcome page, nothing happens so i cant continue the setup. This is the first time I'm trying to set one up. Could someone please tell some simple steps to go thru to get it done?

Please post a screenshot.
The CompanyWeb site IS the default SharePoint V2 site that gets setup with SBS 2003 R2.

Please download the SBSBPA and run a test.
This will tell you if your SBS is setup properly. It will suggest changes.
Did you do all steps in the TO DO List under Server Management???
You can download the SBSBPA from here:http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=3874527A-DE19-49BB-800F-352F3B6F2922&displaylang=en
Hope that helps,
Olaf

You can use RWW. One of the links on the RWW https://fqdn/remote will access the companyweb. Make sure the correct ports are open. (Let me know if you need a hand with that). This is fairly safe because it only gives access to your users. Use a good password policy.
You can give external access to non users but that's like leaving your door open at night time. A better way is to setup an extranet or host the site at a webhosting Co.
Hope that helps,
Olaf
