How to join a Windows 7 client to a SBS 2008 server

Install the Windows 7 client as you normally do and launch Internet Explorer. In the screenshot you see that you need to enable Intranet Settings. Click the Yellow Bar to see the options. One other thing is that you connect to a file that is named WindowsVista.aspx though you are joining a Windows 7 client. Last year (October 2008) SBS 2008 developers did not know precisely what kind of OS Windows 7 would be and they did not even know that it supposed to be named Windows 7.
