Regarding the question: is windows server 2008 better than 2003.

Simple answer, yes if you don't have a lot of server 2003 experience.  If your server has 64-Bit support I would recommend installing Server 2008 R2 (only available in 64 bit).  

Here is a link to a book for 2008 R2, it is so new that the book will not be available until Feb. 2.

Here is a book for 2008:
