Cannot Install Windows Software Update Services


I would like to install Windows Software Update Services on our Windows 2003 Server, so I have downloaded and run sus10sp1.exe, but it keeps failing with the error message that IIS is not installed.

I have gone to Manage your Server, but there is no Web Server Role to install, we are running 2003 Server Standard.

What am I doing wrong and how do I install SUS.

I Said :
Go to the Control Panel, Add Remove Programs, Windows Components, and look through there for IIS/Web Services.  Get it installed and SUS will install (SUS runs off a web page and CANNOT work with IIS).

To be clear - look through ALL the sub categories.  It might be under one of the existing categories - It's been a while since I did a 2003 install.

There lies the problem, I have tried to do this but there is no component called IIS/Web Services, should this be available in 2003 Server Standard, if so how do I install it.

Ok, I have found it.

It is part of the Application Server, very sneaky

Thanks for your help
