I want to set up Notifylink to support sync with blackberry. Notifylink say they can not use the default /owa url to do this. Herei is wat i found on the KB at notifylink:
NotifyLink requires the /exchange virtual directory be configured in Exchange in order to sync contact, calendar, and task information.  When using Exchange 2007, this directory can be set up the same as the /owa virtual directory and simply be re-directed to /owa after logging in.

NotifyLink cannot use the /owa virtual directory to login to synchronize contact, calendar, and task information because NotifyLink uses WebDAV which is not supported on /owa directory

My question is, how do i configure the exchange virtual directory to support this?

Powershell of course:

New-OwaVirtualDirectory -OwaVersion:"Exchange2003or2000" -Name "Exchange" -WebSite "Default Web Site" -VirtualDirectoryType:Mailboxes

Ensure that "Default Web Site" matches the name of your web site in IIS.

If I run this command, will that have any impact on the exchange viritual directory that is already there?

If you already have the /exchange virtual directory then you shouldn't have anything to configure. the instructions that you have posted imply that the directory does not exist.
If it does exist then you should be able to go to https://server/exchange, login and be directed to the /owa version and access the mailbox.
