    I am trying to convert a workstation to SBS from a workgroup and when I do
    the "connect computer" it says it can't install the necessary software
    because this user may not have admin rights or the intranet settings are too
    restrictive. I am logged in as administrator and the intranet security
    settings are on low. Any ideas what to do next?
