How to overcome Sharepoint Server 2010 installation at step 3 during Sharepoint Configuration

I keep getting stuck during SharePoint Configuration after installation of sharepoint server 2010. I configure it with sql server machine name as (local) and I get loop back error and so my Sharepoint Server 2010 installation fails. Any help?
