    No, as far as I understand it, you would need three Server 2003 enterprise editions or datacentre editions to achieve this.

    Exchange, dunno sorry.

    You will need Exchage 2003 Enterprise and Windows server 2003 Enterprise or Datacenter

    3 node is an unusual configuration though as MS recommends only A/P configurations not A/A configurations
    and A/A is ONLY supported on two nodes from what I remember
