Through EE, I found out about the SBS Analyzer tool. Now using it, I am working through the critical issues. One issue is that SBS 2003 SP1 is not installed. However, in checking what is installed, I found 2003 server (not sbs) SP2 installed, but not SP1. Can I get some advice about how to proceed?

I read this SP1 upgrade document over carefully:

I think I would be OK if the SP2 installation does not create additional problems.

You need to complete the SBS install and then after the fact I would reapply the SP2.  You should be fine, if any problems are created they will be short lived once you reload the sp2.

this was answered in a previous experts-exchange post. http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/Q_22987492.html  and they were able to install SP1 on top of SP2.  you may want to reapply SP2 after this though.
