It is the same as for any AD domain, just remember not to purchase a second SBS license.

You can try to check the article that is written on "Running Multiple Servers in a Windows Small Business Server Environment" from this link - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...=ws.10%29.aspx

Well lot of people are saying that they can not get through windows 2003/small Business Server with their vista Home Basic 32 bit , but let me give this little bit of input. but before than i first had the same view, but after trying and making lots of read research, I came up with this.

1. If you alreadly have vista on your computer, but accessing the internet that that passes through the server that is configure to DHCP that Ok.

Right click on my computer
In the shortcut menu, click property
Than display the task pane, in there
click the option that says advance setting,
click continue on the message box
In the system property,
click click computer name on tab bar
Now be very careful in this process,
click on the option that say change
when the computer name area open
change the computer name to one of the name previouslycreated on your domain example: (Man --- IToffice).
than come down to where you got member of and you will see that the option workgroup will be selected by default.
Now click the first option Domain. and in the box Type the name of your domain. Example: ( PEOPLE.LOCAL) and click Ok button at the button.
It is going to welcome you to the Domain and than type (administrator in the upper space and type the password in the lower space) and click ok.
Now from there it is going to ask you to restart and just do at much as possible.
