To answer part of my own question. Re-Installing does make
a bit of a mess of IIS4. I did get things squared away fairly quickly
through the following steps.

Upon initial reboot after the upgrade IIS did not have any of my
web sites information listed.

After re-applying SP3, and IIS3.0 (the upgrade re-installs 2.0)
I still had no web sites. IE4.01 did make it through OK.

Re-Installing IIS4 recovered the website information.
on it's own.

Resetting the WWW_IUSR anonymous logon account in
IIS4's base properties finished the upgrade and restored the
server to operational status.

Any newer files replace messages I left with keeping the
newer version intact.

I wish you luck if you end up having to go through the same
process. I thought for awhile there that it was going to be
another looonnnnggg night.
