2 admins can connect using remote desktop on standard server, not sure if SBS is the same though.

Could try using the /console flag with remote desktop.  Make a shortcut to mstsc.exe and change the target to mstsc.exe /console.  This lets you access the remote desktop console.  Again, works for standard servers, not sure about SBS

With Windows 2008 and 2008R2 and therefore SBS2008 the console session is gone.

You can login as 2 different administrative users but if you both try to use the same user then the active session will be dropped.
