Windows 2003 SBS Premium Media

I have a server which has a properly licensed Small Business Server 2003 Premier OEM.     I need to reinstall this server from scratch, however, I need to locate the media or download ISO images of the discs needed to set this server up.        I have already tried to contact Microsoft directly and the response received was :

Thank you for submitting your replacement request for Microsoft Win Small Bus Svr Prem 2003.

We regret to inform you that we are unable to process your replacement request due to the following reason:

As of September 1, 2009, all OEM versions of Microsoft Win Small Bus Svr Prem 2003 are no longer available from Microsoft.

As our reserve stock has now been depleted, we are no longer able to support replacement for your product.
 
If you are unable to locate replacement through a reputable retail/web store, we suggest that you consider purchasing and upgrading to a later Windows version.
I do not wish to purchase an upgrade as the application  I am placing this server into doesn't warrant the extra cost.        Can anyone help with obtaining a copy of the OEM Windows server SBS 2003 Premium so that I can install it legally on my licensed server?

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.

Did you happen try to contact the manufacturer (ie: Dell, HP, etc..) or was it a "home" made system with the OEM version?

It's a Dell Poweredge 2600 server system.   Dell instructed me to contact Microsoft.   And Microsoft gave me the message listed in the original part about not having any more stock.
