I have a problem here with not being able to get WordPress to install at all. The download was fine and I'm installing to my own server (Apache and MySQL on my own machine - from which I run loads of stuff). I used PHPMyAdmin to set up a database, set up the Apache http.conf file to give me access via the net, restarted the server and went into install.php. No problem there - I entered a name and email address, clicked to carry on and the page just stayed on Step2 forever.
I killed the process and dropped the entire database (though it's worth noting that nine tables had been created in it) then set the whole thing up again, just to hit the same barrier.
PHP 4-223 and Windows 2000 Pro, by the way.
Any ideas, folks?
