How to install Application server on windows 2003 without CD

During adding an Application server role to Windows 2003 server it asks for Service pack 2 CD. But I don't have the CD. Originally it was a server with clear W2003 installation and SP2 was installed using .exe package.

The following article I've found helpful:

It will prompt you for SP2 files first -- these are in your Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386. Then it will prompt you for Windows Server 2003 RTM files -- these are on the CD. You can use any CD -- it does not have to be the same key as the one you've used to install with.
