Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 is the latest OS service pack
Exchange 2007 Service Pack 3 is an easy and supported to install
Windows Sharepoint Services (WSS) 3.0 SP2 is the latest there but may kill CompanyWeb  http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2009/05/06/companyweb-inaccessible-after-sharepoint-3-0-service-pack-2.aspx
Windows Software Update Services 3.0 SP2 is also needed
Finally SBS 2008 Update Rollup 4

The other point I wanted to make here is that if you're using Windows Software Update Services 3.0 which is installed by default with SBS 2008 and integrated into the Security Section of the SBS Console, then it will keep you up to date with all service packs, updates, etc.
