If for whatever reason you've made the decision to implement Microsoft's Small Business Server (SBS) 2003 package, a good place to start might be Jonathan Hassell's Using Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 (Apress).

Chapter List: Introduction; Installing SBS 2003; Initial Configuration; Exploring Windows Server 2003; Exploring Outlook 2003 and Exchange Server 2003; Windows SharePoint Services Techniques; Exploring SBS Standard Security; Using Remote Access Features; The Shared Fax Service; Monitoring SBS Server Health and Performance; The Indexing Service; Index

To be honest up front, I'm not a huge Microsoft fan. In fact, as a IBM/Lotus professional, you might even say I'm a bit antagonistic towards them. But realistically, there are a number of reasons why small businesses might want to implement SBS 2003. Hassell's book would be a good starting point for a power user who wants to become the default system admin, or for an experienced admin who wants to get started with SBS 2003. He does a pretty good job of explaining the setup of most of the moving parts, and it's done well enough to ensure a reasonably good likelihood that you'll be up and running when you're done. Now *because* there are so many moving parts (like SharePoint, Exchange, etc.), this is not the book you'd turn to if you have to get into some major troubleshooting. You can only do so much in 250 or so pages, and Hassell doesn't try to go overboard. As a result, the book maintains a good focus on what it sets out to do. But if something does go wrong, you'll be doing on-line research or be visiting Amazon to get the 1000 page book that covers nothing but Exchange, SharePoint, etc.

To the right audience, this book serves its purpose well. It won't be the only book on your shelf (nor should it be), but when you get done with it, you'll know what it is you don't know...
