[Haskell-beginners] Problems with the Network package

I'm using the Haskell Platform version 2011.2.0.1 on Windows XPat the moment.
I have already used the Network package that comes with it, but I
tried to install other packages via cabal and that failed because the
installation of Network failed.
So I tried to install that on its own and got the above problems.
