Sharepoint services in SBS 2003 R2

 I’ve been going throuhg the configuration of my own SBS 2003 R2 and I found Sharepoint services very interesting. In fact I’ve been through sharepoint services many times but this is the first time I’m doing it for my own. Yes never got the chance to it for my own. Sharepoint services installed during the typical setup of SBS2003 R2 setup and I just need to leanr the product to make the use of this website or I better call it Intranet website or it can be named as Company internal website.A website where you can communicate and collaborate with your organization / employees in real-time. It is very easy and very productive product  and can be used in any ways. You have to know and learn how can you make the use of sharepoint services. Sharepoint services does come along with Windows Server 2003 also and it is same. Here I’ll walk through the very few things of sharepoint but I’ll keep on updating as long as I get the time to publish the blog.
