InitDB fails

After looking at many of the DBMS choices out there (commercial and open
source), I settled on PostgreSQL because of its stablity and feature-set.
I'm having a problem getting it to install, however.

Its going to be used on a device running Windows XP Embedded, and so far
I've had no luck getting it installed in that environment. I can install it
with no issues on Windows XP Pro. But when I attempt to install it on
Windows Xp Embedded, it gets to the point of executing InitDB, then fails.
InitDB reports quite a few "file not found" type errors, then reports that
it was not successful and that it was going to delete the data directory.

Has anyone had any luck intalling PostreSQL on Windows XP Embedded? If so,
do you have any ideas as to what's missing from my XPe build, or whether
it's a bug with the 8.x installers for PostgreSQL?
