Honestly, I think all of these issue stem from platform idiosyncracies 
as both you Ate appear to be running windows and I am running under linux.

I doubt the ANT_HOME is the issue, as I didn't see any issues when 
running the install.

I think the cause of the issue here is either the escaping of the jdbc 
url or possibly the driver not being added to the classpath.  I am 
leaning towards the first.

Hmmm.  When Ant fails, I actually get prompt from the installer saying 
an error has occured and do I want to continue.
