Our sharepoint is messed up and I need to uninstall it and reinstall it on our SBS2008 box.  Anyone know how to do this properly?  I found this KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/829114  but it is for SBS 2003.

Thanks

Firstly it would be really stuffed to need that.
Uninstall Sharepoint from add/remove programs
and then WSUS update services.
then follow this
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/920277
and this

Before re-installing just check IIS that there is nothing there, if it is, you can follow the link in your question.
"Open IIS and delete the 2 websites (sharepoint and sharepoint admin sites)"

Most of the databases need to be renamed/deleted, then you can do a fresh install.

Let us know how you go.

Not sure why you'd uninstall WSUS when the question was about sharepoint, but MS has a process for SBS 2008 as well...just the title changed a bit.
