quick question about sbs 2003 and sql server with Dynamics CRM

hi,

Since sbs 2003 comes in two flavours standard and professional, the professional version adds sql server 2005 workstation and isa server (probably something else, can't remember).

My question is, if one has the standard version of sbs 2003 and plans to have Dynamics CRM v3 or v4, is it possible to install sql 2005 standard on the same server, or have the sql in another server with everything working and no limitations?

You can install SQL 2005 standard on SBS 2003 server.
Note that you need SQL CAL's licenses as well
(for sql 2005 workgroup you don't need SQL CAL's)
