After installing Windows Sharepoint Services 2.0 SP1 all of the virtual directories in IIS 6 broke. They are still currently there but are not accessible ie.

http://localhost/exchange gives a 404 error

I have tried a reinstall of Exchange 2003, an uninstall of WSS 2.0, fresh install of WSS, then a reinstall of Exchange 2003 but still can't get the virtual directories to be seen. I've even uninstalled IIS and WSS but still no luck. All of the virtual directories in IIS have correct paths, and seem to have kept the permissions, settings etc. Any help would be appreciated.

That would be because you extended the domain you are using as a SP Virtual Server.  Try adding additional domains to your website... ie (put your vdirs in the domain vdir.mydomain.com/vdir) and don't extend that directory in your SP Administration.  As far as your OWS, there may be a port conflict, I ran into this OWS problem last year, I will see if I can look back and see how I solved it...

We fixed it by:

Launch the SharePoint Central Administration site
Click on the Configure Virtual Server Settings.
Select your Virtual Server.
Click on the Define Managed Paths link in the Virtual Server Management section.
Add the path to exclude

We excluded virtual directories:
Exchadmin
Exchange
ExchWEb

This is related to the ISAPI filter (STSFLTR.DLL) that is installed when SP is installed.
