XP Clean Install Problem

ok folks heres the deal, i have the devilsown xp pro and when i fdisk and format my computer clean, then use the MS Millienium bootdisk to have access to my cd drive since for some reason or another the cd doesnt boot by itself, i try doing a clean install but about 5 or so minutes in i get an error message about manifest files dont match or something and then keeps rebooting into the same thing over and over, a help file on this website suggested i use crc.exe to verify the cd is the same as the iso file, no problem there because they match, so i finally tried to install win2k and then upgrade it to xp which worked, any ideas on what might be wrong so i dont have to take this alternative method all the time?

P.S. XP runs great on this system no problems at all

p2 266 mhz
128 ram
generic 52x cdrom
8x4x32 iomega zipcd
3x2 gig seagates all their own partition

Yeah, i've read a thread on another site saying that the manifest (inf) files have been hacked to death!! From what I gather they altered / deleted all the unwanted file names correctly, but a couple of the hacked file CRC's were mismatched.

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
