You should have a disc titled "Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition for Small Business", or else have the downloadable media somewhere on your network.

Unfortunately not. I only have two discs; one labelled "Operating System" and the other "Additional Software" and neither appear to contain SQL. Disc 1 must contain it somewhere as it is installed and working after the clean build. I am 100% confident that there are no missing discs because I have more than one set of SBS 2008 discs and they are all the same.

if you have SBS 2008 Premium, the SQL installation should be on the disks, otherwise you don't have Premium edition, and are not entitled to use sql server ...
also, afaik, you may install a additional sql server ONLY for a migration of the SBS, otherwise you need to install a regular SQL Server on a dedicated member server, but on on the SBS server itself.

 Watch the Recording: Learning MySQL 5.7

MySQL 5.7 has a lot of new features. If you've dabbled with an older version of MySQL, it is definitely worth learning.

But SBS2008 comes with SQL Express doesn't it? I agree that I won't have the full SQL version that is supplied with Premium but I wasn't expecting that. It's an additional SQL instance on the same SBS Server that I can use with AVG.

not that I know of.
but you can download sql express from MS site and install it, best on a member server, not on the SBS server itself.

Downloaded a copy of SQL Express. I'd got it stuck in my head that the install files were included in the SBS build but that only seems to be true for SBS2011 and not SBS2008.
