This article describes how to install Small Business Server
(SBS) 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1) on a new computer that is running Microsoft
Windows 2000 Server.
Before you start, make sure that your computer
meets the minimum hardware requirements.
Install Windows 2000 Server
There are three phases to the Windows 2000 Server installation:
the text mode, the GUI or graphical mode, and the wizard-based installation
mode. You must log on manually after the GUI-portion restart of Windows 2000
To start the installation of Windows 2000 Server, start
your computer from the SBS 2000 CD 1 and accept the Windows 2000 Server setup
If you cannot configure your hardware to start from
CD, you must create setup boot disks.
