Hi all,

I googled for a solution to my problem and then searched the PostgreSQL 
site for solutions and since neither produced an answer I thought I'd 
see if anyone else out there knows how to resolve my dilemna... Any 
assistance is appreciated! Essentially what happens is that I just 
attempt to install PostgreSQL 8.0.2 with the default options and it 
nearly completes the installation but then on the step where it 
initializes (or whatever it's called) the database it crashes and rolls 
back the install. When I check the log file it tells me to check before 
it deletes it in the rollback it says repeatedly something about "access 
is denied". Below is the actual install log (or a small portion of it, 
near the end where the error occurs). Any ideas?

Regards, Abe
