UDDI Installation Error

My coworker, Sachin, found this error and discovered the solution for the problem.  Since I could not find any information on the web about this error I thought I would post the story here:

During the installation of UDDI the following error was encountered:

Attempt to configure UDDI Service Web Application Failed. Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. Biztalk uddi service web application cannot be installed because IIS reports an error.

However, there was no error being reported.  The problem was that the default web site had been renamed and was not the standard "Default Web Site".  UDDI must have an issue installing to web sites named something other the the default, because when Sachin added a new site named "Default Web Site" the installation completed without any errors.
