The difference between the two products is that Premium comes with SQL server AND a second server license.  Standard does not come with either of those.  Otherwise, they are the same product.

Yes.  It comes with a DVD for installing Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition which can be installed on a second physical server.  You could also virtualize both servers into one physical machine (but that can be trickier).

No, your SBS CALs cover access to the second server.  You can even buy SBS STANDARD CALs instead of Premium if you don't intend to use SQL.  If you do intend to use SQL, then you need SBS Premium CALs for the users that need to use SQL.

thanks for your comment MR.leew
i am drowning in questions and getting deeper and deeper
there is actually a deference between SBS CALS for Standard and SBS CALS for Premium ?
i allready have sbs 2003 premium R2 and we needed to by a new server since upgrading is not an option for my current server and i purchased SBS 2008 CALS since we can downgrade to SBS 2003 CALS  but i am confused now what if the OLP SBS 2008 CALS wont work on the new SBS 2008 server ?

In 2008 SBS CALs are paper only.  There is no chance they won't work.  So long as you have the appropriate CALs - the BEST place to get licensing advice is from Microsoft - The comments regarding licensing here are "as best understood" by anyone commenting and the licensing rules and terms due to legal requirements in your area may be different from mine.  Further, if we misunderstand or misinterpret them, "they told me on experts exchange" will not be a valid defense in an audit.
