Install Server 2003 standard over SBS 2003

I have an SBS 2003 server that has been migrated to SBS 2008.  The SBS 2003 box has been demoted and is running as a member server - and shutting down every hour.

Is it possible to simply install a full copy of Server 2003 over the SBS install to keep the server as a member server in the SBS 2008 domain?

(there are several tricky apps installed, so I'd rather not install a clean 2003 server - I'd like to use the old SBS install, but i am getting the EULA violation errors).
