I am trying to install an enterprise root certificate authority in windows server 2003 using add windows components. It is asking me for the SP2 CD.
I can download the SP2 install from the internet but I haven't found a SP2 download that wasn't an install. How can I proceed without this CD ?

Thanks in advance
Zack

You could try and use the normal Server 2003 CD without an SP2 slipstreamed.
You do need to have the I386 foldere though, else you won;t be able to install any Windows Component.

I have tried that but the 2003 CD didn't have what was needed.

Then you either need to make sure you are able to extract the SP2 download into single files (normally when you run the installation it will unpack it in the temp directory) and use those files or need to get a CD with either Server 2003SP2 slipstreamed or an SP2 CD. There is no other way of installing it without using those CD's. You cannot download simply the CA files from the internet.

Any ideas on how to acquire a SP2 CD? That's what it is asking for and I've only found installation downloads.

Do you have a Technet subscription?? Because then you would have receive the SP2 CD. You can also try to create your own slipstreamed SP2 version of server 2003.
Here's a link on how to do that with an SP1 version, SP2 is kinda like the same..
