CEICW won't run on SBS 2003

Question: I wanted to rerun the CEICW wizard per MS documentation on how to configure firewall on SBS 2003.  

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc700836.aspx 

This advice is itself confusing to me - I have seen elsewhere on this site information that you can't run a firewall on a domain controller and thus not on SBS, but MS seems to be saying otherwise.

 When I try to run the CEICW wizard, I get the welcome to the CEICW wizard screen, but when I click next, it disappears.  No instances seem to be running.  I start back in the Server Management Console, try again, and the problem recurs. No errors messages, no active instances, and I can't find any related errors in Event Viewer.

Not sure whether the firewall is indeed configurable on SBS 2003, and if so, how to do it.  Also, does my difficulty with the CEICW wizard signify a separate problem, and if so, how do I trouble-shoot it.

Many thanks,

Joshua
