    SBS 2003 R2 Premium have WSS 3.0 bundled. Can I install/upgrade to
    SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007)? Will this cause any compatibility issue
    (knowing how tightly integrated is SBS)?

    I have read posts in the past that SharePoint Portal Server 2003 cannot be
    installed on the SBS 2003. However, with the new release of MOSS 2007 and
    SBS 2003 R2 Premium, I am wondering if it will work this time. Thanks for
    your help.

    My standard R2 install only has WSS 2.0 I don't remember seeing 3.0 at all
    that's why I had to download it from MS. Be very careful about loading 3.0
    as an upgrade to 2.0 because SBS is very particular about some things. I
    just did a 3.0 as a new install so I have 3.0 and 2.0 on the server.

    As for Office Sharepoint I can't answer that. I have not see info on that.
    Best of luck.

    I have read many articles that state if you are going to add on Sharepoint
    3.0 you cannot do this as an upgrade to Sharepoint 2.0 but instead as it's
    own install or Sharepoint 2.0 stuff will not work such as companyweb. If I
    also remember correctly looking at my server SBS 2003 R2 comes with WSS 2.0
    as the standard. I had to download Sharepoint 3.0 from MS.

  4. As Richard wrote....You cannot "upgrade" WSS 2.0 which comes with SBS 2003,
    but it can be installed "side by side"
    There is a white paper on the SBS website

    You CANNOT install MOSS 2007 on the SBS server

    Could you elaborate on why MOSS 2007 cannot be installed on SBS? Any
    official words/docs from Microsoft? I actually did install it and now the
    default website has been replaced by the MOSS site and I was wondering if
    uninstall MOSS 2007 would restore everything. I am bit worried that the
    uninstallation would mess things up even more.
