Interesting.  The installer is seldom (if ever) tested on 10.3.9 these 
days although the hope is that it should work.  I forget if the OS X 
Installer app has this option in 10.3 but, at least on later versions of 
OS X, the Installer menu bar has a Window -> Installer Log option and at 
the bottom of the Installer Log window there is an selector for "Show 
Everything".  Could you see if there is anything more there, perhaps the 
specific file name?
