SBS 2008 program manager Becky Ochs appears in a TechNet Edge video, providing an in-depth overview of setup of an OEM box. Have a look.

I’ve tried to capture the SBS install process in pictures – I don’t think it needs much explanation.
I'm interested specifically in setting up the premium version including SQL all on one server, as you could in SBS2003. I realise it's the full SQL server, and i realise that's not the deployment method MS are recommending but for small businesses like many i work with, it saves a significant amount of money (additional power, networking requirements and space is required), and considering the minimal load required for many businesses i can't see there being any resource issues on a decent server.
Has anyone tried to put all of this onto one server yet? Is there any reason I can't (i'm going to try when I have the hardware in place next week to test but thought i'd get some input here in case i shouldn't waste my time!).
