I have installed the SBS 2008 in the new dell server. During the installation i could not able to create the user   Administrator  in that server. I check with  one of my friend he said you could not  create Administrator since by default it create that user. So used a different name like SystemAdmin and finished my installation. But this  user is not having any Administrstor privileges. Why SBS 2008 not allowed me create administrator user and for my current user how can i  grant all the administrator privileges ?

it is - its just that the amdinistrator acocunt is disabled by default - you can enable it if you wish, but simply create a new admin account and add it to the domain admins group.

1.   Click on “Start button -> All Programs -> Accessories“. Right-click on “Command Prompt” and select “Run As Administrator“. If you are prompted to enter password, enter the password and continue. You can also open Command Prompt in Administrator mode by typing “cmd” in Startmenu Search box and press “Ctrl+Shift+Enter“.
 
2. Now provide the following command:
 
net user administrator /active:yes
 
3. The Administrator account will be enabled. If you want to disable it again, simply replace "yes" with "no" in above command.
