Recreate companyweb on Server 2012

First off, there's a brief question on the topic here, http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2012/Q_28235008.html, which is where I started. We're moving from SBS2008 to server 2012 and Exchange 2013. I need to recreate our "companyweb" site from 2008 on our new server, which server 2012 standard. I was looking into 2012 r2, which includes the server essentials role, which i thought might be useful, but we are still a couple of months away from exchange 2013 support on 2012 r2, so that is out. Long story short, I'm looking for more direction on what was mentioned in the linked post above. I'd like to create "companyweb" just like it was, or very similar, to the sbs2008 version, which for us had a link to access OWA, and a link for rdp over rwa, to control user's machines, all behind a domain sign on page. Sharepoint foundation is a free add-on, I just don't have any experience at all setting this up without the built-in assistance present in SBS.

I think article which describes migrating from SBS 2008 to SBS 2011 should get down the right path.

If you just install SharePoint foundation Server with the defaults and then follow this procedure you should be good.

You'll probably need to do some work in DNS to create an A record for "companyweb"

I didn't even think about sbs2011. Found some good docs and I'm off and running. Thanks for the pointer!
