Win2K3 is a server OS normally servers reside in a room or closet all to themselves. Much of the glamour, bells and whistles are usually not installed because the environment that a server is in wouldn't be productive. Therefore most companies that make enhancement computer peripherals will not support Win2K3 because the clientele that buy the hardware normally use their hardware on a consumer or workstaion machine using a client or workstaion OS like WinXP.
Most of the drivers that work with Win2K or WinXP will work on Win2K3. However since this is a server OS, don't get your hopes up on every driver working on this.

Unless you plan on using it for a development machine, you might be better of installing WinXP.
