installing xp missing .dll files

Hello folks,

I'm trying to reinstall windows xp. However whilst windows is copying the files to my hard drive in order to begin setup i keep getting a missing .dll file warning. It also says your xp disk may be damaged. I have tried two versions of xp and get the same message so it cant be the CD?. I'm missing quite a few .dll files but some are listed here.....sprb0404.dll sprb0405.dll etc.

I get the option to skip the missing .dll files but then windows doesnt work.

Any ideas?
