It's pretty simple. Go to the Blackberry website and download the install files for Blackberry Express server.  

http://us.blackberry.com/business/software/besx.html

If you're familiar with Blackberry server software, the install and configuration is the same as the full version.  If you're not, there's lots of documentation on the Blackberry site that is much more complete than anything I could post for you. There is no special installation process for SBS2011, although I will say if you have a lot of Blackberry users you might want to consider putting it on a separate server if possible. Blackberry uses a lot of resources and so does SBS, so they don't live well together with more than about 10-15 users.

You used to get one free support incident for installation issues with the BESX download, I'm not sure if that's still the case.  If it is, you have to go online and register for the support incident first if you need it.
