Reinstalling Exchange 2003 on SBS 2003 through integrated setup

Achillesheel asked
I am trying to reinstall exchange 2003 on our sbs 2003 server due to an issue with it. The problem is whenever I go through the setup steps thus indicating that only exchange needs a reinstall, the setup starts but then keeps on prompting for CD 2 where exchange server service pack files are located. I have used all the Cds plus also downloaded SP1 and 2 and extracted them to a folder but the installation will not proceed.
Any ideas.

Thanks for the effort. Just noticed that if I put in disk 2 from the start then it goes ok otherwise it does not take disk 2 after it has already prompted for the disk. Weird but thats what was causing it to fail.
