It's probably going to be an easier job to use Open-xchange.  I have done
some prliminary work on integrating Samba 3.0.10 and OX 0.7.5.  this is
documented on the OX wiki.  Most of the Doc is copied and pasted from JHT's
work but adapted for Debian.  It hasn't been updated for the OX 0.8beta4
release or for Samba 3.0.11 but the basics are there to create a Win2K SBS
replacement.  (I'm just waiting for a more stable release of Oxlook to sync
outlook with OX)
