I am trying to to install MS-SQL 6.5 server on my NT 4.0 server, everything goes fine, installation shows different 'wait and watch messages'. At the end of istallation it shows me 'SQL server is starting and checking is state'. After few seconds dial up network screen comes in and shows me 'cann't reach mimi (name of my machine), do you want to dial a remote network.' Then it shows me installation is not completed successfully. I don't know what could be the reason for that.

is your machine actually on a network?  if not, i had a similar problem myself a while back - and found the following article on microsoft's website.  it should be all you need to get going...

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q171/2/25.asp

basically, it instructs you to install the microsoft loopback adapter (the article gives the IP address and subnet mask to use) or, if that doesn't work, to disable the workstation and/or server services in the control panel before beginning the install.

hth,
