SQL 2008 question

Will SQL2008 work well on a Server loaded SBS2003?
Any issues with installation that I may face & how long should this take to install on
a relatively ok server that barely breaks a sweat.

I am not interested in the configuration aspect as we have someone else doing this side.
 
Also Express has been ruled out as an option.

depending on which version of sbs2003 you have it may not be supported.  the O/S support list is here.  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506%28v=sql.105%29.aspx

you'll want a heap of available RAM if you are going to run sql2008.  depending on the connected users and the amount of requests on the dbase.

According to details at link above, in general "SQL Server 2008 (32-bit)" editions work fine on:

"Windows Server 2003 SP2 Small Business Server Standard"
"Windows Server 2003 SP2 Small Business Server Premium"

but not the 64-bit ones.

As far ad how long it takes to install? It all depends on that server hardware resources.

realistically allow a couple of hours to do the install.  if sql requires configuration, installing updates, patches, etc.  probably something you would want to do after hours if the server is in production.
