Getting started with Sharepoint on Windows SBS 2008 - looking for resource tips

Simple request - I have a client who has Windows SBS 2008 up and running mainly for the Exchange, SQL Server and file sharing services, plus just being able to manage workstations with GPO and user accounts instead of peer to peer headaches.

I think they need to implement some simple task management, project management, scheduling, and workflow capabilities which seems to point me in the direction of making use of Sharepoint. I have a subscription to Safari Books Online, so I have access to dozens of books on Sharepoint. I'm just wondering what you would suggest for someone to start with in understanding how sites and basic features are built in this version. I'm not a programmer, but I do understand SQL commands, Office VBA (a little).

Suggestions please?
