Actually Olaf... you're a digit off...  :-)

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/829113 is the correct KB article to follow in this instance.

Actually, I reread the question and see that there may be a bit more to this...

"I also followed http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830326 (unable to get any entry in registry)"

First you should realize that article is regarding SharePoint Portal Server which is not Windows SharePoint Services.

Then its important to understand the error messages which are showing up:

Error 1618 is: "Another installation is already in progress.  Complete that installation before proceeding with this install."  
Error 258 is "The wait operation timed out."

This failure happened because another Windows Installer package may be installed in the background, and only one Windows Installer-based setup can be running at a time.

Make sure that you clear out ALL temp files in the Administrator's directory:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\

Then reboot the server before trying to follow KB829113.

I was stuck up with multiple issues.
The credentials which I was using was not of built-in administrator it was generated and renamed as an administrator, setup.sdb was modified so I was not able to catch the issue immediately.
Thanks for help.
