    I was having major issues with installing Visual Studio 2008 on my
    computer. In particular the .NET 3.5 component required to run Visual
    Studio 2008. I tried everything that was online from editing registry
    settings, setting access permissions and all. I was able to install up
    to .NET FW 2.0 but past that I kept getting error 1603. This error is
    usually an access error telling the user that the target drive, folder
    or file is unaccessible. I found when doing a verbose log with the
    install the Microsoft IIS installation on my computer was corrupted
    and I needed to reinstall IIS on my computer. The best fix for this
    issue is

    1st: Uninstall the IIS server off of the computer.
    2nd: Run the .NET FW 3.5 Installer
    3rd: Re-Install IIS from the Windows CD-ROM.
    4th: I was then able to install Visual Studio 2008 on my computer
    after fixing this.

    I hope this helps everyone out and sheds some light on installing.
