It used to be possible to do that kind of thing on the full server
version. With the Small Business Server, the 2008 version lost a lot of
the configuration capabilities that 2003 had, presumably to reduce the
support requirements with unskilled users.

Possibly the main server line is also following that route, and will
become just a plug-and-play network appliance with one of two or three
roles configured at installation. There was once a time when owning a
car meant employing a full-time mechanic/chauffeur...
