Cannot install version 2.1

I am using php version 5.2.6 and have the .htaccess file. When I enter in all fields on the first page of the installation wizard and hit submit, it just returns me back to the setup page with no error messages. It seems to have setup the database just fine as I went to php admin and saw all the tables. Any suggestions?

    did you try deleting your install completely (database and source), and reinstalling after you are certain you have you have downloaded zip and copied all files, and have permissions correct on all folders. Also what version of php are you using and and are you using mysql strict mode (turn it off if you are).

    and see if you can add these changes to php and try with php 5.3.x

    any reason why you prefer to use a very old version of php. (even if its not the cause of your problem).
    your host has an extremely old version of php.

    And if you are using vanilla 2.1 - you will find some plugins won't work with php 5.2.x
