I have two laptop users and i need to have them sync their files to the server, i thought there was a way to do this in SBS 2003.  How do I accomplih this and then how do I validate that the files are acceptable once they are synced?

Do you want this to be automated or,  manual push a button?

If all of your clients are setup on the same domain, or at least the same local network try accessing the server from the clients by using the UNC naming of the server through Windows run command.  For example:

SBS Server hostname = "sbs001"

From client computer go to start, select "Run...", type: "\\sbs001" (no quotes)
This should pull up all of the shared drives for the server.  Either choose an existing share to transfer all client data into or create a new share.
