Installing SQL 2005 (Report Server virtual directory (ReportServer) can't be used for installation)

I am installing a new instance of SQL 2005 on fresh install of windows server 2003 when I hit the details under the Report Server Installation options I get:

The prerequisite check failed for a default report server installation:
The Report Server virtual directory (ReportServer) can't be used for installation. It is already in use by another application. Setup is defaulted to "Files Only" install.

Try using a DIFFERENT name for the Report Server.

I had the exact same problem, and the accepted solution was of no help to me.
My solution was to "reinstall" the application server role. I guess it was the IIS reinstall that did the trick.

I went into IIS and deleted the Reportserver virtual directory, and the reportserver application pool
