Removing R2 from Windows Server 2003

I need to remove R2 from a Windows Server 2003 but I understand that this is not possible. Will reinstalling the OS without R2 solve my diliema or will I need to completely blow the insallation away and then reinstall? What is the best way to accomplish this task. This server is for a Nortel application and they require that only certain MS patches be installed on the server so I have to manually install 147 patches that I have to download individually.
Thanks for any assistance,
David

You would need to install Windows 2003 server if you don't need Windows 2003 Server R2.

You will need to do a full reinstall

Ouch, that is going to be painful with the MS patches. Thanks for the quick response.
