I have installed WSS several times and never got this issue:

Upon running stsv2, at the point when the admin page is supposed to
come up, I get an error, and the
http://localhost:13071/configadminvs.aspx page cannot be displayed.

Is your app pool identity a power user on the server and the
database server?

Does it have access to the database server?

so auth logging is enabled in sql and you dont see anything either?
what about the security log? you can use a local policy that turns up logging
in the event log. see if there is anything strange there? you still havent
found a difference in any variables from the last several times you have
installed? is this a single box deployment?

Is IE configured to "Show friendly HTTP errors"? If so, turn that off and see if you get a more meaningful error.

Perhaps even turn on stacktracing in the web.config.

Is this set up in an AD domain? If so, is it possible that the server has lost its account in the domain?

There's a tool I use named HTTPWatch which allows you to track every request and response from within the browser. You can see all of the HTTP headers sent and received. Cookies and headers are enumerated. I've found it indispensible in troubleshooting. If it happened to me, I would start a trace in IE to watch what's actually happening and see what headers are being sent in response from the server or if the server is simply dropping the connection, or if perhaps the Windows Integrated Authentication handshake is dying. The tool is somewhat expensive, so it may not be an option for you, but like I said, I don't do much in terms of troubleshooting without it.

Can you look through the list of SQL's connections to see if the web server has been able to successfully open a SQL connection?
