i had similar problems with another piece of software. the problem in my 
case was that the system had no network configured and thus no local ip 
adress (localhost / either. i'm not sure if pgsql relies on this 
ip being present.

on the other hand, you wrote you had 8.0.2 successfully up and running. did

your computer? - just to check if it has something to do with the installer

also, there are ways to manually install and setup pgsql without using the 
provided installed - this might be some sort of last ressort for you if 
everything else fails. of course this would be quite unpleasant as you have 
to set up the service and initial databases manually as well.
