Hi I'm new to this forum and have the following problems

I had just previously installed SP2 i had some seriously process and needed to do a repair.
I Know this procedure very well and have carried it out prio to now. But to my Greatest Shock

During the restore process it keeps telling me "Setup Cannot Copy Files XXX" (XXX = different win. files) from your Cd.
I have a a brand new Win XP Professional CD and i can see the files so can you please tell me how to get round this?

At This rate i Cannot do a fresh Re-Installation.
