SBS 2003 Premium missing CD3

Hello,
I was in the process of successfully installing SBS 2003 Premium when I discovered I was missing the 3rd disc.  It is required to install some of the server tools etc. I have called MS and they were no help since this is an OEM copy they gave me the run around.  I have a friend that has SBS 2003 R2,  can I use his disc 3 to complete my SBS Premium installation?  Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Probably - R2 technologies are usually on a separate cd,  Try it.

You should go back to the OEM for replacement media. If you cannot contact them then Microsoft will replce it for a fee depending on your region.

Called MS System Builder support, they told me that they needed the 14 digit number of authenticity, which of course I don't have.  Again they gave me the run around saying that the OEM distributor would need to be contacted.  I have no idea who it is, I guess I'm stuck trying to find a CD3 or using the R2 CD3.
