MS Exchange 2010 install problem

I have a problem installing exchange 2010. When i run the setup I get following error.
one or more servers in the exisiting organization is running exchange server 2003 without service pack 2 or later. installation cannot proceed until existing exchange server 2003 computers are upgraded to Service pack 2.

cannot find the receipient update service responsible for doamin 'DC=domain.DC=local'. New and existing users may not be properly exchange-enabled.

Here is my current configure:
1 SBS 2011
1 2003 server
1 2007 server
right now i am running exchange on the Small business server. That server is having hard drive issuses. I want to move the exchange function to the 2007 server. The exchange server was not installed until after the exchange was setup on the SBS. It exchange server 2003 was not installed by me. however I have to fix it. I tried to install SP2 on the exchange 2003 server. The update will not select the microsoft exchange messaging and collaboration services. I tried to uninstall the exchange 2003. After the uninstalled I tried reinstalling 20120 exchange. I still failed. Since 2003 exchange is not compatable with 2010, 2003 exchange must not have install correctly the first.
Now how do i remove the 2003 exchange from the domain?

Went through the link. Not sure how to configure Site Replication Service on exchange 2010.
The 2010 install still thinks there is a 2003 exchange server running.

You might need to use ADSIEdit tool for cleanup. If you are familiar with this tool use it, else open case with MS. Don't take any risk.

I only have 10 users so I am going to rebuild the domain.

Rebuild domain? You might need to configure everything again.

Did not get a response that fixed the problem so I used my own option.
