 +  * Unzip / Extract the file E3SP2ENG (or the file for your language/​locale) to the same directory/​folder where you saved it upon download. ​ It will create a new folder and subfolders structure there.

 +
 +  * Recommend Restarting Windows Server to save the new settings after applying Exchange 2003 SP2.  Also recommend backing-up the installation or entire O/S.  It may be easier to use something like Bart's X-PE to boot your server, and use Ghost 9 to backup an image (or images of each) installation and data partition, saving those partition images into a pre-named folder on an attached external USB drive. ​ You can restore from there if you later have a problem with configurations after installing Exchange 2003 SP2.  This is only recommended before configuring exchange mail boxes or before using ExMerge to restore mailbox data from a retiring Exchange Server.
