Event ID 9098 - Errors with Exchange

Hi guys, i'm back...  

I'm having the following problems with Exchange.  I have not configured it yet, i had just installed it as it's parts of server 2003.  I'm getting the following errors in the event log:  The following errors are what i'm getting.  I am reading a book for exchange but i'm not done and don't want to play with it untill i know what i'm doing.  But i would like to remove these errors from the log

The MAD Monitoring thread was unable to read its configuration from the DS, error '0x80040154'.
Event sink registration for SMTP virtual server /LM/SMTPSVC/1 failed. Error code is 80041002.
Metabase Update failed replication 5 times with error 80041002. Please change the diagnostic logging level of MSExchangeMU to 'minimum' or greater to find the source of the problem.

These are all exchange problems that i'd like to clear since it's filling up my event log.

I will call but as for teh solution over top.  It's not it.  We have a win2003 Server (Small business) and this was a fresh install from Dell (actually)

Sorry . . . not a Dell installation fan.  Never once had I ordered a Dell server that didn't need to be redone . . . . never once.  To simplify things, I'd wipe it and install it myself.  It's not that big a deal, and it will work.
This issue is also addressed in Exchange Server 2003 SP2, released 10/19/2005.
