Is there a good guide to setting up database servers, specifically MSSQL 2008 on Windows Server 2008, in a large organisation?

Brilliant - thanks for that. I'm always on MSDN for dev work, but totally forgot about TechNet. – christianlinnell Dec 14 '09 at 20:34
I do the exact opposite! I live on Technet, and often forget about MSDN :) – Sean Earp Dec 14 '09 at 21:55
