I think Alex's suggestions are good.  I have a MS insall that has been
broken for a while.  From what I can tell Yum broke things and now I think
the key to getting it to work is the MS installer and seeing what issues is
is finding.  The problem is a lot of stuff flashes by really quickly so it's
hard to tell what issues it is finding. I was looking for an install log to
find out why I still have problems.
My suggestions would be:
1. Write an install log somewhere and at the end of the install tell the
user where to find the log.
2. We possible to identity, and supported by the console, highlight errors
that may be an issue in another colour so as they flash by you know there is
something to follow up on.
