    I went out and bought the full XP Pro install. after i did the long reformat (NTFS) the disc starts to install packages. when it gets to ipsecsnp.dll the file cna not be copied. i have reformatted and installed 3 times. when i skip these files the system does not run smoothly, any ideas?

    well if you bought XP you get some free support from microsoft. you might want to give them a call. They cn tell you exactly what that error is.

    it jsut says "the file *** was not copied correctly. The file setup on your hard drive is not a valid windows xp system image. if you are installing from a CD, there may be a problem with the windows XP CD."


    and i stops on the same file most of the time.

    ok figured it out, it was sometime with my hardware. I set my ram to auto speeds, instal of the 2.0 DDR timings and as low as they can go. after the operating system is installed i will crank it back up.
