Ilias,

i don't know what th eproblem is, but you can review
the winxp Home SP2 install instructions here:

http://www.geocities.com/operationsengineer1/

i followed these steps and the installation worked. 
if you did anything that deviates from these steps,
i'd recommend following them to see if that solves the
problem.

read all th eway through the instructions b/c it tells
you how to uninstall pgsql - which is not intuitive on
winxp home.

good luck.
