    I have been having trouble installing all kinds of games lile Rise of Nations, Battle for Middle Earth, and also MS officee 2000. The problem has been the same with all of these installs, Says
    "Setup failed to extract files frpm E:\ game2.cab This is most likely caused by low memory {low disk space for swapping file} or a corrupted cabinet file Please retart you machine and run setup again."
    Yesterday I have recently reinstalled windows Xp home edition with SP2.
    My machine:
    AMD 64 3400
    1 Gb pc 3200
    80 Gb HD partioned into 2 drives
    Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks
