while attempting to install windows xp pro i receive this error:
"An error has been encountered that prevents setup from continuing. One of the components that windows needs to continue setup could not be installed. Data error (cyclic redundancy check)". i am going to the sites that you posted right now....

Okay, i think i figured this one out... (i think)... i ran the program "cdcheck" and it was missing some things, and seems to have fixed my problem, or it could be that my hard drive was bad, because i did replace it, so it one or the other, either way i was able to install xp on my hard drive. so it was either the cd or the hard drive was bad.... Thanks for all of your help!!!!
