I've had a similar experience. I'm setting up a trial installation of MS Project Server 2007 and the process is bizarre! It requires 4 different licenses just to get up and running: 2 Windows 2003 Server licenses, 1 SQL Server 2005 license, and 1 MS Project Server 2007 license. Each user that wants to connect to Project Server needs a licensed copy of MS Project 2007 Professional @ $1000 each. The setup of all these servers is convoluted, poorly documented and each requires a significant level of tweaking to get reasonable performance.

It's been a long time since I've had to deal with Microsoft's products and I've forgotten what a mess it is. It's so bad that it makes setting up and configuring Oracle's stuff seem simple.
