Hardware details? If you are trying to install on a modern computer it's probably the SATA problem that has already been discussed hundreds of times on these forums. An ancient OS on a modern computer is always going to be a problem.

Failure to copy files during XP Install is often symptomatic of bad ram.
Have you run memtest86 from a bootable floppy or CD to check your ram integrity?
