Unhappy Windows XP freezing at "Installing Devices"

I hate to make my first post on the forums one asking for help, but I've run out of options. I have searched for this on google and, honestly, could not find any threads or web sites that helped with the problem.

I'm trying to install a copy of Windows XP Pro, I've tried several different disks and different copies, and even tested those disks on other computers. They install fine on other PC's, but on this laptop they all freeze at the exact same point.

It freezes whenever it gets to "Installing Devices." Before stopping, it will continue to install a little more than halfway through.

I was just wondering if anyone's had this problem before, and what they did to fix it. =)

Here's the specs on this laptop:

IBM ThinkPad
Pentium III 800mhz
256MB Ram
20GB HD
DVD-drive
