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!!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

Removed IIS, rebooting now.  Once back up...I will install IIS using add windows components, check for updates, and try to reinstall exchange
