A quick google of the error message pointed to this [KB article about installing SQL 2005][1].

The install routine cannot deal with you installing SQL Server default instances into certain foldernames. Read through the KB article and see if that is the case you are encountering.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
