    Hi,

    I have a set of 5 machines - 2 desktops (one being a thin client and the other to function as a 'server' ) and 3 notebooks. I was wondering what was the difference b/w the 2 versions Windows Server 2003 and Windows Small Business Server 2003. Is it true one cannot use a thin client but need a regular cpu setup to use Small Business Server 2003 ?

    There is a difference in costs and since i have windows 2000 on the desktops and xp on the notebooks wondered if i needed to shell out so much more $$ for the Windows Server 2003 . I plan to put in a wireless networking system to link all the 5 machines.

    Thanks in advance for any and all advise.

    Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server has the following restrictions:
    - Only one computer in a domain can be running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server.
    - Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server must be the root of the Active Directory® forest.
    - Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server cannot trust any other domains.
    - A Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server domain cannot have any child domains.
    - Each additional server must have a Windows Small Business Server 2003 client access license (CAL). You can use CALs for each user or for each device.


    The standard edition of Windows Small Business Server 2003 includes Windows Server 2003 technologies, including fax service, firewall service, and remote-access service. Additionally, it includes Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, enhanced tools for server monitoring and administration, and an out-of-the-box solution for internal Web sites. The standard edition is ideal for customers who do not require the higher-level functionality included in the premium edition

    The premium edition includes everything in the standard edition, plus Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2000, and Microsoft FrontPage® 2003. The premium edition is ideal for small businesses with more demanding IT needs, such as data-intensive line-of-business applications, or advanced firewall and Web-caching capabilities

    The standard edition has most of the stuffs inside.
