I don't know how exchange works but i'm pretty sure you can join the w2k
machine to the samba controlled domain in NT4 mode. I would guess that
exchange will use that userdb ...

don't use active directory unless you really need it.
better yet don't use exchange - you'll be sorry.
It's byzantine and they rape you on the licensing fees...
Instead use a web groupware suite like phpgroupware like i do (which can
use the ldap db for authentication)
People like the outlook integration but I don't think it's worth the
time or trouble.
