I am "brand" new to SQL and I need some help with the installation of MS-SQL 2000. I have gone through the setup process and followed all the directions, but it keeps hanging up on me in the installation process. I get to a part where it says, "setup starting the server and installing your chosen configuration" but it just sits in this mode until I finally have to "CTR, ALT, DELETE" to get out. Can someone help me out, or point me to some trouble shooting guide for MS-SQL 2000. I am guessing this has something to do with my server set up, but I am not sure if it even gave me an option to pick which server I wanted. Heck I don't really know, all I know is that I have tried this for 2 days, now I have about 6 different instances of SQL on my pc and none of them work, or at least none of them will go all the way through the setup process. Anyway, please help!!!
