You should search for it on Google Groups, it will likely have the fix.

open up My Computer and check the amount of free space you have.

reformat.... very easy to do. insert winxp cd and click format. you don't need to reinstall drivers or anything. just backup your stuff.

Maybe a firewall or some anti-virus software you're running in the background is interferring...try turning them off then attempt the install again.
