What special characters allowed in the BESadmin password?

I've been fighting with the BDS install - both 6.1 and 6.2 - for a couple of days now.  I get so far and then the install just quits with a error.  The last message in the log is "Unknown error launching package [1639]".  When I did a search on that, I found a couple of entires that mentioned invalid characters in the BESadmin password.  One entry specifically said that the password can't contain a quote (").  Are there other special characters that can cause problems?  Our BESadmin password contains a space and some other special characters. Could somthing as obscure as a special character cause the installer to mess up?
