My last info about that produkt goes, that this is a mixed win 
2003/exchange server ( giving small companies the first shot to never 
turn back back windows addiction g ? ), so should be able to add it to 
the smb domain but
you cant use all funktions ( exchange )right out of the box (cause they 
need to have the active directory ), so if sharepoint needs to have 
active directory,which iam strongly guess of , forget it.
My last info about this Produkt from my win admin friend ( its true i 
have some g ) dont use this it , cause the services arent work work very 
good together , cause of the general software layout.
I would recommend to search for gnu alternatives for sharepoint ( 
whatever it is )
