Yes, sorry about my ranting. Novell is just nostalgy for me.
For ABE you only need 2003 server with at least SP1 (or R2).

That's something which was possible in Novell since ... well, as long as I remember.
And finally that's a new possibility since SP1. So you need SP1 on your 2003 + an additional tool.
It's called ABE: 'access based enumeration' and can be downloaded here:
