Exchange 2003 Error

We just had a hard drive failure on our exchange machine. We bought a new hard drive and reinstalled the OS. Now we are reinstalling exchange. I ran ForestPrep with no issues.
When I go to run DomainPrep, I get the following error message.. "Setup failed while installing sub-component domain-level permissions"..

I researched on Microsoft and found that 2 users need to been in AD under users(which they are).. Question, Since these users where probably created with the first exchange install, should I have deleted them first before running ForestPrep?

I don't think you have to prep the domain or the forest again since it was there before....

do you have your data backup?

here is the instruction.

I did have to delete the users in active directory. Once I did that, exchange added them back after the forest build.
