It appears you do not have enough RAM. You need at least 64MB.

Comment 2 derek olson 2002-12-19 22:56:55 UTC
i have increased the ram which fixed the bug error but now i gets 3 quarters 
of the way through formatting the hdd and it freezes 

i installed it on a xp2100 and it went through no problems could it be becasue 
it is only a p200 with 256mb ram and a 6gig hdd
