SBS 2008  and Firebox X10e Pre Install Question

I'm a little confused on setting up my initial DSL->Firebox x10e->SBS 2008 Server.

I checked out a video that stated to turn off DHCP in the firebox after the install and before running internet connection.

What has me stumped is that I'll probably need an internet connection for the server so that updates can happen during the install.

So do I configure the firebox for DHCP (by the way my DSL has a static IP address and the firebox is setup to go with that IP) initially?

Should the  connections be:
DSL to Firebox in the Wan 1 port then:
Lan0 to a switchbox and then
switch box to sbs server?

Help!!!

DHCP on the Firebox should be off all of the time.

You set the IP of the SBS 08 box during set up. It then sets itself up to serve DHCP.

You should allow the standard protocols outbound such as HTTP, HTTPS, NTP, DNS, etc.

Inbound should be:
 HTTPS: 443
 SMTP: 25
 HTTPS Companyweb: 987
 PPTP + GRE: 1723

DSL --> Firebox --> Switch <-- SBS 2008.

BTW, please don't use the Install Updates option during the SBS OS install. That will cause a lot of grief.

I was planning on doing the answer file for the install.
What's your opinion on that?

We use it all the time to have some consistency across our servers as well as reduce the keyboard time needed.

We do not install updates at that stage at all.
