 On your win 2003 server
go to your network connections...

Start > Settings> control Panel> network and dialup connections

Right Click on local area connection and choose properties.
  in the properties box that comes up click on " Install "
in the " Select componet type" Select   " Prorocol"
  then choose Apple Talk... and install it apply changes and
  make sure to have your server disk handy and that should do it...

  I dont think you have to restart...
  Good Luck

From memory, you'll also have to setup shares on the server specifically for the macs.

Go into 'Computer Management'  > Expand 'Shared Folders' > Right Click 'Shares' and select 'New File Share'

*You may also be able to "Mac Enable" current shares by going into the properties of shares - not sure as I'm not infront of a 2003 server right now.

You can also select the level of authentication by right clicking 'Shared Folders' and choosing (going from memory) Properties or Apple Share Properties - or something similar.
