Active Directory problem on running data collection

I am installing a Exchange 2003 server and trying to connected it to an existing 5.5 server. In the Active directory connector screen, when trying to run STEP 2 data collection I get the following error

Server <MAILSERVER> :389 is not an Exchange 5.5 server or an SRS service.
Data Collection stopped. Check the ADCTools.log file for the cause. Then repeat Step 2.

When I look at the ADCTOOLS.LOG  I see the following

Pass 1 of 4: Resource Mailbox Scan 09/20/2004 11:39:31
      Server mailserver name :389 is not an Exchange 5.5 server or an SRS service.
Maybe a dumb question but,

Is LDAP enabled on the 5.5 server is it set to use port 389? Have you run the domain prep and forest prep?

I had to resort to calling MicroSoft to walk me through the full Installation of Exchange 2003. The problem was I need to change the port to another port cause something else was using port 389.
