I experienced some problems after installing Sharepoint. We lost OWA and RWW and were unable to reinstall these.

Someone on the forum pointed me towards kb829114 (removing/installing SBS2003 Sharepoint)  and although everything uninstalled fine, when I install the Intranet again I get the message  "An error occurred while installing Windows SharePoint Services and creating your intranet site" and the installation fails. This message is normally associated with the old SBS Disk 3, but Im using one with the new digital certificate.

Ive tried running kb832880 as suggested but this crashes with a  Fatal error during installation message.

In IIS the Web sites are empty as these were removed as part of kb829114 and the Default Web Site ID had become corrupted.

Thanks for any ideas.
