Mac OSX and Sharepoint 2003 questions

We just started using Sharepoint 2003 and we just found out that this does not work properly for Mac users who use IE,FireFox, or Safari. You can log in, however, none of the Active X controls work when you try to use any feature that utilizes MS Office. We have Office installed on the machine though. Is there a way around this other than having the few people that use Macs switch to their PC when they need to use sharepoint?

If the Macs are brand new Intel Core models I guess you could run Windows under Parallels.

Otherwise ActiveX does not and never has worked on OSX.  Are their any alternative methods to connect?
