Which Microsoft servers will authenticate off samba 2.x PDC ?

We have a samba 2.0.7 PDC currently with about 40 mainly NT4.0 clients.
Management as decided to evaluate some ERP software (which is more
expensive than the rest of our IT budget) which requires MS SQL.
Initially we will be borrowing someone else's SQL server, but if we
decide to keep the software, we will need to set up our own one.

So, would it be possible to:
-have SQL server running on a member server of our samba-controlled
-have the SQL server authenticate users off the samba-controlled domain

Of course, management would also like to have Exchange, but I gather
from other posts that samba 2.2.0 won't do this. Any idea when this will
be possible (samba 3.0 ?)
