BTW - I forgot to mention that the machine is setup to dual boot win Win98 (which is installed on C:) and Win2000 (which is on G:). Does this matter?

  Doesn't seem to offer much help!

    I assume this happens before you are presented with even the first dialog box?
    Please try running the installer with logging enabled:
    msiexec /l* c:\pginstlog.txt /i c:\where\ever\postgresql-8.0.0-beta4.msi

    That should produce a logfile that will hopefully point you in the direction of what's wrong

      I've been able to install version 8.0.0 beta 4 on two machines but the third one fails. The Windows Installer starts but after a few seconds the installer widow disappears.

      I'm using Win2K with all current service packs.

      Any ideas on what is wrong or how I can make this work?

      TIA.
