Fixed. But odd.

Tried repairing discs and permissions. Tried deleting plists (but couldn't find many appropriate plists). Tried installing in safe mode, no joy.

In the end we decided it must be an illegitimate copy. Went to the Apple store and bought a new copy.

Pushed install and the install/download bar went straight to 96% (where it had hung previously) and asked for the machine's password (Exactly the same pattern as before). Put the password in and the install finished in around two minutes!

So, it's all in there now and working perfectly. Cost me an extra 140, I could have done without spending. But at least we know it's the real deal.

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions.
Hope I can return the favour someday.
Best regards, CB
