One reason for this is when you have multiple AD controllers. The SQL
server is authenticating to one and the CRM server is authenticating to
another. When the CRM Install creates objects in AD, they haven't
replicated to the other one by the time the install tries to created the DB
objects, as a result, the install fails.
The following article provides a few ways to resolve this:

I'm trying to install Microsoft CRM Server for testing
purposes on a Windows Server 2000 machine. I have install
all the needed software, including SQL Server SP3, Exchange 2000, IIS,
Indexing services, Message Queuing, etc.
When I try to install CRM Software it gives following error messages
" Failed to install Microsoft Customer Relationship Management Server"
"Failed to create Microsoft CRM Database"
