Office 2003 MSI Won't Work With SP2

2000 Server/XP SP2/Office 2003

We have an Office 2003 MSI file that was being installed via Group Policy before a user logs on. This was working fine until we upgraded to SP2. Now the package won't install and the log shows a "The installation source for this product is not available" error.

Any ideas please guys?

Thanks - but these machines have never had Office installed on them before.

not my field, but have you looked in the Group Policy Editor to see if your Office 2003 MSI,has been disabled by the install of SP2!

Thanks Jim - it is still showing as 'Assigned'. Interestingly, what happens is that the PC does try to install Office and displays the 'Installing Managed Software' message for a couple of seconds. This suggests to me that it is seeing the Group Policy entry correctly but can't then locate the actual MSI file it is being directed to.
