In short, yes.
Exchange server?

Windows server editions support file and print sharing for Macintosh. This allows them to support Mac operating systems from at least as far back as system 7.1 (including MacOS 8/9/X), although now most macintosh computers ship with MacOS X. MacOS X is based on a linux core which allows it to use the common unix printing system (CUPS) and Samba (the file sharing system used in windows). This means that standard file and print services can be used from virtually any recent Windows OS, not just server ones. Printing likely will require a compatible Macintosh driver to be available although CUPS has increased the number of compatible drivers included with MacOS.

Which other services do you wish to use from your windows server 2003 box?

Being pedantic here but I think you'll find that OS-X is based on the Mach Kernal which is from BSD land, not Linux, and is now a certified UNIX system.

Oh and Samba is the open source re-implementation of Microsofts' SMB system not the actual system used by Windows. :thumbsup:

To the op: Bonjour should cover the basics, anything more complex like authentication should be answered by a quick Google or this: macwindows.com/leo…tml may answer some things.
