If you are installing SBS 2008 and following along the SBS 2008 Community Build Document and get down to Prevent the failure of SharePoint 3 SP2 by installing Hotfix KB977022 and find that it fails no matter what you try, here is what I found that worked for me, hopefully it will work for you as well.
Create a temporary directory like C:\977022 and put the file you downloaded and extracted in it.
Expand the file by opening an elevated command prompt
(right click the Command Prompt Icon and select Run as administrator)
Change directory to your temp folder
Run the following command to extract the patch
“wss-kb077022-fullfile-x64-glb.exe /extract:.\here” you don’t need the quotes.
When it finishes, close the command prompt window
Click the check box to accept the EULA
Click next and then OK
Open windows explorer and navigate to C:\977022\here
Right Click the sts-x-none.msp file and select install
When it finishes check the Event Viewer in the Windows Application log for a message ID 1035 with an error code of 0 which means you were successful.
You should now be able to install KB953338 WSS SP3
