Trying to reinstall IIS and Exchange on sbs 2003

I've been googling all day...Everywhere I go, it says to uninstall IIS using Add/remove programs, restart server.  Install IIS using add/remove programs>Windows Compenents and then go to Windows Small Business Server 2003 in Add/remove programs and click change.  Then I should be able to highlight exchange and change to reinstall.  Except when I get to the part to reinstall Exchange, I am instead met with an error that says my default IIS website is missing.  It tries to install IIS and fails with a generic error.  Help!!

You should follow these instructions for removing IIS: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/320202

Did you shut down exchange services before removing IIS?

I followed those directions.  Everythiing seems to go ok, until I go to Small Business Server 2003 in Add/Remove Programs.  Instead of taking me to the application list to reinstall Exchange, It tries to configure IIS and fails.

Should I also restart before installing exchange?
