I tried to upgrade to XP from 98se and about 2/3 of the way through Preparing
to install (after about the 3rd reboot) I get a message that says:
setup was unable to verify drive C:
Your computer may not have enough Memory to examine the drives or your WinXP
cd may contain some corrupt files.

The CD is brand new out of the box
The system is
Athlon XP 2500+
512 MB Ram
3.66G of hard disk avaliable
Nvidia GeForce 2MX/MX 400
Creative SB Live sound

Don't know what to do.
