I have to reinstall Small business server 2003.  I have installed R2 overtop of the small business server to gain the use of SQL Server 2005.  I have some issues with WSUS, SHAREPOINT, and SBSMONITORING msde instances.  I have been told and Microsoft says to reinstall it.  What would the procedure be, just put in disc one and rerun setup within windows?  Is it going to wipe anything out?  I don't care if I lose any sharepoint data or sbsmonitoring data.

    Monitoring is changed /removed through add/remove software and SBS, remove, restart and install again, WSUS and Sharepoint is separate.

    When I try to uninstall the instance I get Instance name not found.  Do you mean go to SBS 2003 Server and choose change?
