oohhh I'm about to go nuts. Win 03 Server SP1, not sure of the Virtuozzo version. host is goDaddy cannot install McAfee Viruscan 8.0i (could not contact filter driver. mcshield.exe service won't start as result) cannot install Perfect Disk7 (cannot communicate with PDengine) cannot install Alcohol120 (install error) cannot install DAEMON tools (setup on reboot never happens) For now if I could get some antivirus and virtual CD software to get my SQL 2000 Server installed I'd be VERY VERY happy. Heck, if anyone was willing to say a few words I'd be perky. ahhh, a long painful 5 day journey that I hope ends soon on a positive note. Someone please educate me on software installs on Virtuozzo.
