I've just migrated from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 on a new server. The old
server is now wiped and ready to install the free additional copy of
Windows Server 2008. The RAID is configured, the drives are formated and
I expected to be able to boot from the DVD and start the install
process.

It seems I was wrong as the DVD is not bootable and I'm not sure how to
proceed without first installing some other OS. Surely there is some
simple way of creating a bootable floppy for the purpose or something
similar that will then kick start the installation from the DVD.

Am I mistaken or am I missing the obvious. Likely both. Any help is
much appreciated.
