If you are looking for an official download, there isn't one anymore unless you bought it through volume licensing. If so then it'll be in your lost of available products in the VLSC website associated to your account specifically. All trial versions and similar have gone away and since the product is no longer in mainstream support, there are no legal sources.

If you have an MSDN subscription you should be able to access the downloads.

I see it in my subscription downloads

Disc 1: Windows Small Business Server 2008 Standard and Premium Installation (x64) - DVD (English)
ISO English Release Date: 9/11/2008

The correct order of installation for Small Business Server is:
Disc 1: Windows Small Business Server Standard and Premium Installation
Disc 2: Component Technologies for Server Repair
3. Windows Server 2008 Standard (x86)
4. Windows Server 2008 Standard (x64)
5. SQL Server 2008 Standard (x86, x64)

I meant "list." And VLSC only shows software from an agreement associated with the VLSC ID. So if you didn't buy SBS under VL, or didn't add the agreement number to your account, it won't be there.
