    Installing Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 on Windows Server 2008
    Note: During the install of Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 you must use Network Service as the Service Account or the installation will fail.

    Has anyone successfully installed CRM 4.0 on Windows Server 2008? I am getting a SPN error now, looking into http://consulting.ascentium.com/blog/crm/Post108.aspx
