SQL Server Installation Error

During the installation of SQL Server 6.5 an error message is received that the system cannot start the services for SQL Executive.  If I try to start the SQLExecutive in Services, I get the error message "The SQLExecutive service returned service specific error 109".
I have completely removed all references to SQL Server both in the directories and in the registers. I then have tried to re-install the application.

21. If you're getting a 109 error starting SQL Executive then this is a permissions problem with the NT account you've supplied not having permissions to the relevant service or registry keys - HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\MSSQLSERVER. The easiest thing to do is install both MSSQLSERVER and SQLEXECUTIVE with the localsystem account and then go back and change it later.
