I agree that RIM's documentation is not great, but with the guides and posts on this forum I had no real trouble and was running inside of 1 day. Since the install I haven't touched the thing. It just works.
I suggest you do some reading, wipe your machine, and start again following the instructions exactly. The setup is tedious but not overly technical, and once going it is well worth it.
PS. I am not an IT professional, just an average user who wanted a BES for his small business.
I did similar to the above poster, installed BES express on my Windows 2003/Exchange 2003 box, it has run pretty much faultless for 18+ months.
