    I have installed it on a Windows 2003 Standard test server. It's
    actually very nice, although the security configuration wizard isn't
    installed by default. It comes with a firewall exactly like XP SP2.
    The configuration tool itself is really nice, it uses the server role
    selection and then continues to:

    - shut off client services (dns, dhcp, wins, etc...)
    - enable/disable administration services (rdp, backup, firewall, etc...)
    - network ports to open (http, dns, etc... You can also add your own!!)
    - SMB security signature requirements
    - methods used to authenticate with remote computers (domain, local,
    file sharing accounts)
    - inbound authentication methods (remote hosts that require lan manager,
    not configured to use ntlmv2
    - configure auditing
    - enable/disable web extensions for IIS
    - directories to retain for IIS
    - deny anonymous write access to content files

    Overall pretty nice!!

    Hope that answers your question.

    Has anyone had time to install and test the new Windows Server 2003
    Service Pack 1? I haven't seen or heard much of anything on it... But,
    I have been a smidge on the BUSY side...
