I have a SBS 2003 and everything has been good. I just rebooted the system and now the system stalls on Preparing Network Connections and doesn't start.

Is there anyway to get around this? Please help!

How long ago did you install this?

Can you boot into Safe Mode?

The stall on Preparing Network Connections is usually due to Exchange looking for a connection on a disconnected interface.  So, boot into Safe Mode (F8 at startup) and run "ipconfig /all" at a command prompt and post the results here.
