I'm putting Norton Internet 11 on a server. The Symantec install requires that IIS be running. When I tried to add IIS, it asked for the Windows Server 2003 CD.. UH oh.. They couldn't find it.
As far as I know it's a completely legal install. However, I think the previous folks never put the CD where it was supposed to be.
My question is, what is the best way to get either the server 2003 media or the files needed to install IIS.
I might have a trial copy of server 2003 somewhere, I was wondering if I could use that to install IIS.

I know in the past when I've built Windows servers I've always copied i386 onto the hard drive, that way if you make a config change that wants the install cd you just point at the i386 directory and you are on your way.
Thanks for the tip on the i386 folder. I'll remote in later and check that.
I wasn't able to get the media. MS was looking for a valid licenseing agreement. They were finally able to locate it. We also found out that we needed to re-up the TS Cals.
The reseller I use gave us a quote of about 250 for the CAls and Media. (About 7 users)... Overall, that's not bad.. Now, they will be fully legal with the Cals, we'll have the media and we'll have a years worth of the licensing support from MS. I did spend about an hour of "No you have to call the ____ department" with MS. Finally found the e-open folks who then referred me back to the reseller.
Anyway, it's fortunate that the company is organized and had the old licensing info in their files. I had to dig to find it, but it was there..
thanks again for the ideas.
