I had this problem too, and phoned the SAS Help Desk (in the UK) for assistance. They said that the problem was the USB support, which conflicts with the SAS installation program, and that I should install the FIBERFIX patch or disable USB. I did both of these things but neither worked. I even installed Windows 95a (which does not support USB) but the problem was still there. Version 6.12 TS045 (which fixes this problem) is only a maintenance release so you need to install it over the top of TS020, which is impossible if you can't install TS020 of course.

The Help Desk were very helpful and eager to get it all working but I left the job before it got sorted out. ;-)
