XP Freezes on installation

Specs: Windows XP Pro Serv2, 1.8ghz Athlon XP / 1gig P

Everytime I try to install windows XP it freezes at the same place (Windows is starting) on the blue screen that boots the installation. I have tried Home and Pro and different CD's of both. I have sucessfully installed 98 and 2000 and tried upgrading from them. I also tried installing from blank. Help! Windows 2000 blows!

I have seen cd roms that perform perfectly well with everything else do this...you could try another one of burner. Ram incompatibilites show up here big time with XP installations, check your ram!
