I just tried upgrading my SBS2003 server, no ISA, to Service Pack 1.  On the 5th step, upgrading to SBS2003 Service Pack 1, I am receiving the following error:

Component name: Server Tools
Version 5.2
An error occurred while creating virtual directories in Internet Information Services (IIS).  Manually create a test virtual directory, and then retry installing IIS from Add/Remove Windows Windows Components.

Does anyone know what this means and how to correct this problem?
