Here is my own follow up... I loaded up a standalone Windows 2003 Web Server Edition this evening under VMWare 5.5.1 on my notebook. I did not load any service packs (ie w2k3 sp1), hotfixes, or the exchange 2003 system manager. I used my full BESX 4.0.3 installer, and was able to successfully add an eval cal auth key that I had (which I know is not in production) and the srp identifier / auth key... At this point, the install dies as there is no mail profile and will not continue.
I am therefore guessing if the install will go this far, then it will successfully complete.
