Portal Blues

Another day, another portal v5.0.2 installation attempt. It keeps failing an hour in with "WAS Enterprise server not installed correctly". Sigh.
Fixpacks galore, etc. It would appear that the best way to install it on a win2k pro machine would be to install WAS EE v5.0.2 first, apply fixpacks, then let portal rip.

I must have seen 10 or so installation failures on a variety of machines so far.

It had better be worth it..
