The Console setup process (Once SBS is set up, how to do the basic configuration through the management console) sets up SBS 2008 for use.  OneCare for Servers provide anti-malware capabilities and is an important part of the system integrity.  SBS 2008 comes with a trial of OneCare and so far I’ve found it very effective.  Setup today requires two updates that it downloads and applies itself:

Notice that the initial configuration immediately informs you that you need to update

08 - OneCare Setup (2) 


Start the process, tell OneCare which country you are in and and accept the EULA.

08 - OneCare Setup (3) 08 - OneCare Setup (4) 08 - OneCare Setup (5)


The download starts, updates and finishes

 08 - OneCare Setup (6) 08 - OneCare Setup (7)


If you have an activation key, or wish to purchase one you carry on through the process, switching to a web site to complete the process

08 - OneCare Setup (8) 08 - OneCare Setup (9) 08 - OneCare Setup (10)


Note, DO NOT try to activate your trial in the Technical Preview unless you have already been provided with a key

08 - OneCare Setup (11)


If you have been going through the Console in order then this is it baring the enabling of Office Live.  Finally, all the SBS 2008 entries can be found at http://davidoverton.com/blogs/doverton/archive/tags/SBS+2008/default.aspx
