Thanks - maybe I wasn't clear.  We have SBS2000.  I was just trying to
determine which other components SFS requires (like AD, exchange, etc).
Otherwise, we could get by with a simple workgroup setup.

That being said, the needs are basic too.  That's why we're looking at an
included product that (hopefully) doesn't require lots of other supporting
applications to configure.

You need SBS2000. AD and Domain are part and parcel of an SBS2000 network.
The shared fax service is installed as part of the SBS2000 install. If you
didn't install it originally, then re-run the SBS2000 setup. You also need
to install the Shared Fax Client on the workstation. There is plenty of
documentation on the SBS2000 install CD/install manual.

For more info on SBS2000 try www.sbsfaq.com or www.sbs2000.info.  

The Shared Fax Service included with SBS2000 is very basic, although we do
use it. For more than just basic facilities you may be better looking at
third party solutions (e.g GFI Faxmaker).
