the data on the cd itself is fine
it seems one file..the ntdll.dll file is the one thats corrupt or missing and prevents it from booting up properly

this is in the setup stage
and i copied the i386 folder of the cd to my hd like i usually do with my other installs pre Win2k

does that matter ?

just take it out of the caddy and connect as a primary. There are 2 parts of the win set up , text base and the GUI based. The first part loads all the drivers , right ? they go to ram, then you get to the part where windows will find partions or whatever, you can format the hd here.....so it does not matter when you start what state the HD IS IN....RIGHT ? Then after the format it writes to the HD.

right !!!

take your primary, win 2000 prof HD out, diconnect, take the HD OUT of the removable and connect that in it's place of the win 2000 prof. ..with no other HDs , maybe nothing but a cdrom diive and the HD from the caddy / removable ( the hd is out of the removable unit and, by itself is attached to the ide cable and is primary drive) then try and install win 2000 adv server.
