I have installed SBS 2008 on my domain, however, I was sent three discs, one was documentation, and I guess the other two were for the installation. The installation process never asked me for another disc. What is that other disk for? it has product keys on it. Also, I noticed that outlook is not being installed on the computers that are being added to the domain by the server http://connect.  I thought outlook gets installed as part of the client package. Was I supposed to run that other disc for a specific purpose?

I did follow all the steps outlined in the link. Currently all that takes place when a new user\computer is implemented is the link to the companyweb site, the role assignment, and a welcome email is sent to the user. Outlook is not being installed. I wonder if it because the workstations came with trial versions of office 2007 preinstalled.

Quite possibly, it might have detected it so not installed it...

I will try an experiment and remove the trial version from one of the computers, then run the package again, and see if will install. Is there a way to run the client package without having to remove and add the user?

Well I removed the trial version then removed from and re-added it to the domain, then ran the client package, still no outlook.

Actually after looking around on line, seems that Microsoft stopped including Outlook after sbs 2003. Thanks to all of you for your input.
