insert the disc, run the installer.

Seriously though, what do you mean?  

I normally install it behind a hardware router/firewall.

Joe, I need to understand the question a little more on what you are trying to do here.
You don't mention any details - what version of SBS and ISA do you have? SBS2000 had ISA2000 - so did SBS2003 unless you had the SBS2003 CD pack from service pack 1 which gave you the CD's for ISA2004 - what have you got?

The list of equipment, to be frank is overkill. ISA (any version) was the best firewall/application-gateway combination in the world and the version that came with SBS was designed to use all of the inbuilt wizards etc to configure itself with enough basic rules to allow everything to work. ie Companyweb, RWW, OWA etc. However, if you already have a Cisco router & Sonicwall, apart from proxy, I am not sure what ISA will add for you.

Does your SBS box have one or two nics installed? Are you wanting to use ISA as a proxy/firewall or just proxy?
As you can see, your brief question does not give a lot to work with.....

As everyone has pointed out this is a very vague question.  but if you were going to use ISA for vpn authentication this might help you out.

you install from add remove programs - windows components.

in the matching criteria I create a security group and add it. I then add users to it for access to vpn authentication.  I find this easier to manage than applying the settings directly to the user as the document suggests

The doc uses old ios as the config example. you might need to be familiar with current IOS to set it up correctly.  I'm sure you've used google before

make sure you use this command in your tunnel group

authentication-server-group (aaa-server group name) LOCAL

this will alow you to use the local database for authentication in the event your ISA server is unavailable to authenticate.  Without the local you will not have vpn access with a down ISA server.  It will not use the local names if there is a server available.
