Unable to uninstall Sharepoint Services 3.0

I'm having problems uninstalling sharepoint services 3.0 from a few server 2003 servers. Either through the install executable, or through add/remove programs. The executable will generate an error report, whereas the add/remove programs method does not. It just crashes at the start of the removal and nothing happens.

When looking at the log file, I see the following at the end:

Executing command path: 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\PSConfig.exe', args: '-cmd uninstall'
Error: Command: 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\PSConfig.exe' failed with error code: -1. Type: CommandFailed.
