cat vs. dog -- help!

Okay guys, I need some help!

We're moving at the end of the month, and found a great big house with a great big yard and it's basically going to be doggie heaven.  Making the move will be Edgar (Boston), Ollie (Jack Russell mix), and Hotis (my dog-nephew, who is a Boston/Pit Bull mix).  Here's the part that gets tricky:  Our roommate, Mary Beth, wants her cat to live with us.  My gut tells me this is not going to work, but I see pictures and hear stories from you guys all the time about dogs and cats who live together and love each other.  Other information that you might need to know:  Her cat has been living with a dog for the past 10 months (apparently they were not happy with each other at first, but are BFFs now), and the cat has not been de-clawed (so it could totally scratch out little puppy eyes).  So ... how can I make this work?

Basically, I need to know:

1)  How to introduce the boys to this cat, who has claws, and
2)  If they react badly to each other at first, at what point do I know to give up? 

I am so terrified to step into stupid pet owner territory here, so please tell me about your experiences with cat/dog integration.  Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance,
