I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but here is my
problem. I have tried 5 times to install SP1 for Server 2003 on my Exchange
2003 SP1 server. Every time I have tried this it hangs at the Appling Network
Settings screen. If I disconnect the server from the network completely I get
a login screen. However, if I plug the network connections in I have no
connectivity to the network. It's like the TCP/IP service is shut down. Also
only 2 of my 6 Exchange services starts. If I try to start the others it
fails. I have tried disabling the A/V system but I have the same problem if
turned on or not. I don't see any other services that are supposed to start
not starting.

I have tried everything I know and have no idea how to get this install
done. I need to to do this install so any help would be great.
