Install Web Apps on SBS 2011 Premium

I'm wondering how to setup Office Web Apps on our SBS 2011 premium add-on, or if it is advisable to begin with.

I have read on various forums that it is not supported to install the web apps on the SBS 2011 machine itself because the web apps do not play well with domain controllers. Fine. I have the premium addon license running on a different machine. How can I set it up so that RWW users can use the web apps?

According to the official MS marketing materials, the Premium Addon can be used for this.

Thanks for any help.

Though I have not done so myself, you may also find the following helpful as well. The first outlines what you can and can't do, pretty much what you already know, and the second (from the first) outlines how to move your existing Sharepoint instance to a second server

To the best of my knowlege not to many have done this in SBS environments as you still have to buy Office Volume licenses.

Thanks. I'm still looking for some feedback on those who have tried this. But that guide will work.
