Do you know if Client licences for SBS 2008 work on SBS 2003 ?  I need more licences for our SBS 2003 but we are not ready to upgrade just yet, and our reseller has only Win2K8 CLIs for sale !

I'm not 100% sure about client licenses but with other MS licensing there is a downgrade option. You can use the 2008 server license to obtain a 2003 server license for example. I would imagine its similar for client licenses.
This webpage may shed some light but I don't know if it has exactly what you're looking for;
