Having Trouble Installing Reporting Services

P: n/a
i am having some trouble installing SQl server Reporting Services.
well, in order to install the reporting services i have to install
Service
Pack 3a.
so through my installation of package 3a i am encoutering some trouble.
i was able to comlete the first part of the installation i receive

this error message: Instance name specified is invalid

so, my question is: once you have SQL Server installed, where can you
go to find the name of the instance
and once i find it, can i rename it?
i originally installed SQL Server a while ago. during the setup, i do
not recall a particular name i might have given it.

See questions 12, 13 and 28. You can't rename an instance - you have to
install another one with the correct name, move your databases to it, and
then remove the original one.
