Recently while working at a client I was installing the BITS 2.5 update for Server 2003 (as part of the prereqs for ConfigMgr), but when the server rebooted at the end of the update it essentially died.

Subject: All Level 5 Guides Open for "Limited Event" – Wednesday August 13, 2008
After speaking to the other Level 5 Guide owners, they have all agreed to open their guides during the times I specified in my post yesterday. Our "Open House" day is to let you experience some of the content that we have available. I don't know of any other site that charges any fee and opens the doors to all the videos for even 5 minutes. I encourage as many people as possible to join our Open House and experience a portion of each of the guides. Search out the videos you are interested in now so you know which ones to focus on during the hours the Level 5 section will be open to all registered users. If you are not a registered user, please register clicking on this link to join. Please use your real email address as we sometimes send out important messages related to the site.
You will have the ability to view as many of the 82 Level 5 videos as you can during the Open House. Below are the following topics that you can choose from:

The Active Directory Migration Tool version 3.1 (ADMT v3.1) simplifies the process of migrating objects and restructuring tasks in an Active Directory® Domain Service (AD DS) environment. You can use ADMT v3.1 to migrate users, groups, and computers between AD DS domains in different forests (inter-forest migration) or between AD DS domains in the same forest (intra-forest migration). ADMT can also perform security translation (to migrate local user profiles) when performing inter-forest migrations.
