Did you restart the system?
Sometimes it could be that simple.

Make a full backup of the system or clone it.
Then use the installation disk to make a repair installation for exchange, then apply the service pack again.
Good Luck!

That was my plan if I did not find any other way. It is a client's system and a repair install of SBS 2003 can be costly. Thanks for the help. I am hoping for a better solution.

While your description of the problem has quotes ("") around the error message, I very much doubt that is the EXACT message.  Providing the EXACT message would really be helpful in solving your problem.

The exact phrase is "You must have Excahnge Server 2003 installed on this machine before installing this service patch"
Thanks

You'll need to reinstall Exchange in order to fix that error.

See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997239(EXCHG.65).aspx for how to do that.
