I don't like the wizard from the SBS console becuase it is very limited and i steer clear. But yes it should work...Key word being should....The way i have described WILL work and is how and MCSE will preform said tasks.  That being said the SBS console is user friendly for a novice administrator.
Um... limited in what way?  Yes, you can add users without using the wizards.  But it is a whole lot more work.  The SBS dev team insures that using the wizards adds the users to all the correct security groups, sets the OU for GPOs and a whole lot more.  if one is not to use the wizards, then there is no point to SBS, except that it is a less expensive package than buying all the parts separately.

You can very well do it "manually", but I can't imagine instructing a novice to do what you suggested and not tell him about all the other things one has to do to get all the settings to work.
i disagree...you buy sbs for Exchange and Sql, NOT for wizards...its more affordable for a "Small Business"...but the point is moot...i already agreed with you that the SBS console will work and if you read my first post i did explain everthing that had to be done.  I also can't even begin to tell you everything thats limited in the sbs console (Scripts, permissions, exchange features, etc, etc......list goes on).
