I ran into a huge problem that may make Monday a day to remember.  I installed Exchange 2000 server despite the pop up error stating that there are compatibility issues in Windows 2003 OS.  The IFS virtual driver for drive M:\ is failing, even after using a Microsoft prepared script to removing or fix drive.  This is the actual message I'm getting:

"Exchange 2000 IFS Driver.  Devices or application disabled Exchange 2000 IFS Driver will cause Windows to become unstable.  Windows has prevented these drivers from loading'
Information store will not start because of this IFS driver.  Does any body know of a fix for this or this is a done case?  I've spend all weekend troubleshooting this problem but no success.
At this time exchange is not usable....it's no good

Thanks for your help, links and .....
