To enable Outlook Web Access (OWA) you need a machine running IIS (joined to the domain) and then install the OWA components (all exchange components are NOT required, just OWA)
If you run into issues use the OWA troubleshooting from MS:

Do you have any documentation on installing the OWA Componets.Once I install the Owa componets from the exchange cd will I be up and running.

Yes, once you have installed the components from the Exchange CD you'll be fine. I did not use a separate IIS server for the OWA install, I used the Exchange server itself. The user needs to point to <ip.address.xxx.xxx/exchange/> to connect to theserver. If your server has a DNS entry you can use <machinename.domain.com/exchange/>
One trick I found is that the trailing slash MUST be present, goodness knows why, but its the only way I could get it to work. Occasionally I run into trouble with permissions. There are some directories that require READ and/or CHANGE permissions, but only if there is a problem. Like the guy previous, the MS outlook trouble shooter page can be helpful.
