Cannot setup new Virtual Server Name in SQL 2005 Setup

Trying to add a new SQL 2005 cluster node to an existing three node, all active cluster on Server 2003.  I go to an active node, Add/Remove programs and run through the setup.  After the Instance Name screen, it should take me to a Virtual Server Name screen.  It does not.  I have tried running this from all three nodes and also the new node.

The new node has joined the cluster successfully.  But now, I must get SQL 2005 working.  Everything I have read tells me that I should be seeing a Virtual Server Name setup screen.  I have tried logging onto the active nodes by their machine name, their virtual names and even to the cluster name.  Each time, the setup never takes me to the Virtual Server Name screen.

Can anyone tell me what I am missing?

Thanks,

Joseph
