SQL 2005 Clustering setup Issue

For whatever reason, when I install SQL 05 with the failover cluster option the installation fails when installing the datbase services. The service fails to start - and it kicks back an error stating that it didn't start in a timely fashion. I validated the service account, it's a local admin, checked all my settings, and everything appears to be by the book. Even if I change the user account that it is attempting to utilize, it still reads back with the same error message. My windows cluster is setup properly, all permissions are appropriate, all of my drives on the SAN are visible. Can someone help me out with this? Thanks, davidhiggins@gbscorp.com

Have you checked all Event logs for an error message?

Yes, it only replicates the same error - could not start in a timely fashion. This is driving me crazy.

Is it possible that local admin does not cut it? I mean that the account might need access to some network resources, so you might want to try setting up a network account (which is still a member of the local admin group)?

Yes, service account was used and has admin rights. What's also weird is if i use the global domain admin account it still gives me the same issue. I can also start other services with the service account created.
