How would one go about joining a Surface Pro to a SBS 2003 domain?  SBS requires clients to be connected by a wired Ethernet connection.

Where did you get the impression that SBS requires clients to be connected by a WIRED ethernet connection.  They just need to be connected via network - wired or wireless doesn't matter so long as your DNS is setup properly.

I have always used a wired connection, and I am getting an error when connecting on this computer.
"Make sure that only one network adapter is enabled and that it is connected to the small business server."

DNS is set to the server.  Bluetooth adapter is disabled, and no other adapters are visible in network connections.
