I have recently reinstalled SBS 2003 Premium for my small network. When I looked under users, there were already 27 people added under the active directory. Most of these people are in the Security Group. Can most of these be deleted or are they necessary for the system to run? I know that there is a maximum of 75 user son SBS 2003, I do not think I will ever hit that many, but would just like to keep the AD as clean as possible.

Thanks,
Thomas

Unless you performed a recovery or migrated into an existing AD environment there should be no other users or groups besides the default security groups and system user accounts.
So are you saying that when you browse users through AD there are users in there like "john doe" ?

No, they all appear to be the security group (domain local, global, universal), but there are more than 20 of them. Do all of these users need to stay?

I just did some reading and found that all of the things I was seeing were the groups.

Yes I think what you were seeing were the default groups. The best way to add users on an SBS server is throught the wizards as that's the way it was designed.
