    Our network has a WS2k PDC and BDC. The file server, Exchange server and SQL
    server are all running on WS2003. I need to audit a specific user to see if
    they are might be making copies of files they have access to, and taking
    them offsite.
    I read an article on WS2003 that said "Once the security policy is created,
    it can be applied to the baseline server, or any other server in the
    organization." Does anybody know if that includes servers running WS2k?
    Is there an easy way to accomplish what I need in WS2k?

    I'm not sure if auditing will be able to tell the difference between making
    a copy of a file and simply opening it in whatever application would be used
    to do that. But even if it could tell you that someone copied files to a USB
    key, floppy, or burned them to CD, I don't see how it could possibly
    determine where the media had been taken.
