Make sure TCP/IP is installed as well as a network adapter of some type (ethernet,loopback,etc).  Do not select tcp/ip as a protocol, use only 'named pipes'.  Make sure to remove the \MSSQL key from the registry before attempting to reinstall.

Have you checked the NT Event Log - application and system? There might be some information there that will help.

Also, make sure you are logged in as administrator when you are doing the installation.

Are you installing the server on your machine or just the SQL client?

If you are just setting up a demo machine and will only be using the client to talk to the server on the same machine, try communicating via named pipes instead of tcp/ip.

By default it will use Named Pipes to communicate internally. I'm not sure if this is still true, but it used to *only* communicate locally using named pipes. They might have changed that.

I tried both namepipes and tcp/ip, but it stil didn't work.
I also try to add NAMEPIPE in my network, but I didn't see any?
