setup /prepareschema
setup /preparedomain
setup /preparelegacyexchangepermissions
setup /preparead      (this is the one that actually creates the Exchange Administrative Group) is found in the root of the E2K7 DVD
In order to run these you need to have the appropriate permissions. Make sure you have Schema Admin and Enterprise Admin permissions.
After you have finished these steps, rerun setup.exe or click the install link from the DVD autorun.
