I couldn't install 8.2 ( Instead of I got a lot of Error messages :)

P: 2
Hi everyone,
I am new to PostgreSQL and trying to install it,
My login account belongs to "Administrator Group"
But I tried after creating newone as User Account(limited)..

First i downloaded;
postgresql-8.2.msi
postgresql-8.2-int.msi
upgrade.bat
README.TXT
----------------------- files...
When i double-cliked to postgresql-8.2.msi i see language selection form and after clicked next there is nothing more, till i run Taskmanager and End "msiexec" process (there are 3 msiexec i am ending that running with 4mb ram). When i ended process install progress continues.After clicked Next,Next....
Service configuration window appears,
---> if choose start as a service then it gives "Service PostgreSQL Database server 8.2 (pgsql-8.2) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services." error at the end of the install and rolling back.
---> If i dont choose start as service then although installer says install completed successfully, if i try to start database it says "coulndt find "postgresql.conf".., data folder is missing
--->Or it says "PANIC: couldn't open the control file "global\pg_control": Permission denied.This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team" etc.

I just want to install PostgreSQL, trying for 9 hours and i couldn't install yet...
I tried a lot of thing..
Created limited accounts, changed permissions, i musn't be so difficult. I hope there are someone to show me where i am doing mistake...
Can you help me? Can you explain me the right way to install?

Best Regards..
