Default trying to reformat xp pro

when i put in the xp cd and begin the new installation it runs thru the process until it comes to installing windows and then it says cannot install kbdus.dll you must shut down. when i retried i either get this message or the blue page that says to prevent damage to your pc it will stop. i want to wipe it clean and start fresh. how can i get a clean installation ?
