A strange article on the Microsoft website, which Airplay has just blogged about.  If I am reading this right, the MS Small Business Server's (which I typically refer to as MS BS) installer has a date-based validation routine for installing MSDE.  And if the computer's date is later than November 23, 2003 (just a few weeks after MS BS shipped), the install will fail.  The workaround -- set the system's clock back.  Time-bombed installers -- that's harkening back to the bad old days of useless license enforcement.  Doh!
