I need to install an SSL certificate on a SBS 2003 server.  There seems to be many options and prices for SSL certificates.  How do you know which one I need?

You should only need a single name SSL certificate (not a SAN / UCC certificate).

About $30 should get you one for a year - if you are asked to pay more, you are spending more than you need to.

Depends on what you want to use the SBS for but largely Alan is correct - a standard cert will do.
