Default Installing off a reinstallation CD

I'm having some problems installing windows. When I try to install after the drives have been formatted and it starts to copy files it always fails to find a file called idecoi.dll. I am trying to install windows on 2 fresh western digital 80gb RAID 0 hard drives. I select the appropriate RAID drivers when it prompt me to.
I'm wondering if maybe thr problem lies in the CD I'm using. It's a windows reinstallation CD from a Dell computer. Can you use reinstallation CD's from companies like Dell or Alienware to install windows and be fine? Or is that what is probably causing my problem?
Oh btw it's Windows XP professional

Yep, I've used Dell reinstallation disks without a problem.
