I've attempted to install WSS 3.0 with SP1 several times as both stand-alone and server farm with no luck on Windows Server 2008.  When I get to step 5 of Configuration wizard it begin installing and publishing services but on Step 5 I get the message "Failed To Register Sharepoint Services". The detail behind this message reads "An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException was thrown". Then I

Run the command psconfig -cmd configdb -create -database <whatever_unique_name>

Click on Start / All Programs / Administrative Tools / SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard

Should work now (it did with me).

PS: This was done on a Virtual Machine (VMware)
