we have ust received our first copy of windows 2008 sbs, and during installation we accessed the "what I need to know" option, which stated that we needed a MINIMUM of 4Gb of memory. Can anyone confirm that this is the case, and what is the MAXIMUM memory that 2008 sbs will address.

Hello nigelbeatson,

it't not only the minimuim specs, but you CANNOT install SBS 2008 with less then 4GB of ram, it just won't let you!
actually minimum 6GB, preferably 8GB is advised.
