How to patch/install the FE E2K3 server?

We already have an E2K3Ent. Ed. BE server (with SP2 installed) in place, now 
we want to install a FE server.
Does it matter how you install the FE server as far as which order to make 
it a FE server and when to patch it with the SP's?
If it doesn't matter I would assume it would be best/quicker to first make 
it FE, then install the SP's?

Thanks!

The only caveat here is that OWA won't work properly on the FE until it is 
the same SP version as the BE.

If you are just building a new server and won't be advertising the website 
until you are done, there shouldn't be any issues with doing it either way.

Outlook 2002 Installer
I did a Drive C: disk copy from an old HDD to a new, larger capacity one. Everything seems to work correctly except Outlook 2002 (which is a part of Office XP Standard for Students and Teachers). When I try to check my e-mail I get the message "Operation Failed" and when I try to re-install, or uninstall, the program I get an error about the "Installer" program not functioning. Anybody know how to fix this problem? I suppose I could just manually delete the software, but at this point I have no assurances that even that will work. Thank you in advance for your help...

HELP: MFC ODBC SQL Server problems
I got a problem where in SQL Server a table has a column of type REAL & size (precision) 4. It's meant to store double types for C++ variable values. In SQL Server, the value 1E+10 translates to 10000000000 in C++ fine, via MFC's CRecordset class (DBCORE.CPP). However any numbers above this value translates to wrong numbers. Such as: 1.1E+10 => 10000000512 1.00001E+10 => 10000001024 1.01E+10 => 10099999744 1.0000001E+10 => 10000100352 Strange huh? Has anybody experienced this before? Does anyone know what is wrong?

ADC won't connect to Exchange server 5.5.
I am running Win2k SP4 with Exchange 5.5 SP4 running on it. I want to migrate Exchange 5.5 to a new Win2k3 R2 member server running Exchange server 2003 SP2. Since I need coexistence, it asks me to run Active Directory Connector. Once ADC installed, I entered the name of my server and the default 389 port. Then on step 2 of the ADC it says to click data collection, when I click run it says "Server migrate (server_name): 389 is not an Exchange 5.5 server or an SRS service."

Unread public folder patch (KB836686)
I had previously installed the update mentioned here: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=836686 to resolve the bogus unread count for public folders in E2k3. It worked great - then I installed SP1 for E2k3 and the problem resurfaced. I checked the KB article and noted that the "Applies to" section now notes SP1 so I called them up and got the update again. When I try to apply it though it tells me that it's not valid for the service pack I'm running and exits itself. Has anyone managed to get this patch to install on E2k3 SP1?
