I recently assembled a new PC with the following specs:
Asus P4PE/X motherboard
Inter Celeron 2.0 GHz
PC266 Kingston 256MB DDRAM memory
Inno3D 64MB video card
CDR/W drive

I tried to install the Windows 2000 Pro but an error
occured during installation. During copying of files, some
files were not copied and setup can not continue. This
also occurs in Windows XP but when I install Windows 98
the installation is smooth.
Please help. I really want to install Windows 2000 or XP
in my PC.
Thanks!

You didn't mention the drive controller (possibly SCSI, or ultra DMA, or
ATA100, or raid, or serial ATA), but you may need to boot the Windows 2000
setup disks or CD-Rom and *F6* very early and very important (at setup is
inspecting your system) in the setup to prevent drive controller detection,
and select S to specify additional drivers. Then later you'll be prompted to
insert the manufacturer supplied Windows 2000 driver for your drive's
controller in drive "A"

If you wait and then S to specify additional drivers, then it may be too
late as Windows 2000 Setup at this point may have already assigned the
resources your drive's controller is wanting to use.
