BF2 in Windows - pointers?

We are currently playing around with running BF2 under Windows 2003
server instead of Linux. Since we have no previous experience with
Windows servers, I was hoping to get some quick pointers on this forum
as to what is smart to do.

We're using a plain Windows 2003 Server r2 installation. No services
have been enabled. The system is an HP blade with dual Opteron 250.

Firewall is on by default. I assume it's better to turn it off? Or
should we keep it on, considering that Windows is Windows...?

We're running the srcdsfpsboost.exe tool to increase the framerate
(similar to running Media player or an sfw in the background).

What else should we think about? Are there for instance drivers that
need to be installed to achieve optimal performance? I am a Windows n00b
with very little time - please educate me :)
