Without the additional conditionals,and the [L] the .htaccess file fails to run on the streamline servers.
Now that I have inserted the above conditional I can see the Installation pages, but am receiving the following errors, these are displaying at the top of the document before the doctype.

Can i just proceed with the install or if not what can I do to re-solve this problem. Another question I tried to continue the installation, just ignoring the above, as this installation wont be an actual site, i just want to test that it will work on my reseller hosting platform. Does mcrypt have to be turned on in the php.ini file? Because when I get to the Configuration stage, i have the following error:
PHP Extension “mcrypt” must be loaded
Or is it not loading a function correctly somewhere in an include? due to the errors above.
Yes I did, your reply didn’t exactly answer my question.
However I found out that mcrypt & mhash must be installed and enabled using the php.ini file. At the moment streamline.net do NOT support this, sent a ticket to them asking them to install and enable it on their servers. Shall have to see what they send back to me.
If they refuse I will install it on my VPS account with webfusion or my account with dreamhosters.com, and see how that goes.
