    I Installed sbs 2003 Evaluation kit over Preview kit and
    it will expire in 5 days but I never got a chance to try
    it out. I left the computer sitting waiting for below.

    When I got RC 10/09/03 I installed it.
    On 11/03/03 I got an e-mail from
    that said they sent the wrong one Preview RC Kit and would
    send the correct one in mid november. I got it 03/26/04

    My question is can I reinstall the new one I got to try it
    out or will I just be wasting my time and it will still
    tell me I have only 5 days left which is not long enough.

    I ordered the book "Microsoft Windows Small Business
    Server 2003 Administrator's Companion" ISBN 0735620202
    which was shipped yesterday hoping that I could get a
    start with it.

    Thank You

    if you were to delete everything and fdisk the hard drive to totally blank,
    then put the SBS disc in the CD/DVD and boot from it and you should get a
    fresh evaluation period.
