This is strange. First it says it's not a symlink, then it's saying it IS a symlink, but (I assume) it's saying that the file it's linked to doesn't exist.

If you issue:
ls -al /etc/rc2.d/S20httpd
it should show it as a symlink to /etc/init.d/httpd, which should exist.
If it DOESN'T show as a symlink, it might be worth removing it and recreating it as a symlink to the right place and trying again.

Failing that, perhaps someone else on the list can suggest a way to either force an unistall or at least convince the OS that it's been uninsalled so you can try another install. Beyond that I'm afraid I'm stumped...
