In the event that my server would crash, what kind of items would I want to backup so I could restore them on a new server.  Of course I am backing up all the shared folders of users but I was wondering about other things like active directory and stuff like that.   Anything that would make setting up the new server smother.

If you want to properly restore an SBS you should use the SBS backup utility located in the server management console. This will back up the entire C: (system Partition) and allow you to select all or part of other partitions. This is necessary if you plan to restore AD, DNS, DHCP, Sharepoint, Exchange, applications and much more. See:
