Unhappy XP Install Failure (multiples)

I am working on an AMD 1800 Machine that needed to have Win XP reinstalled. I made sure i started with a clean harddrive and the install failed. Over the past day or so i have swapped out each piece of hardware and each tim ethe install has failed. This last time i thought it was going to make it, 19 minutes left, but it crashed saying it was being caused by framebuf. Any help would be appreciated.

this is usually caused by the cd-rom not reading correctly or the motherboard does not like the memory you have installed or the way it is installed. i would test with a newer cd-rom first than try swapping the memory around using only 1 stick at least 128MB. than i would test with another memory brand. don't test with an old cd-rom drive. also disable memory ECC if possible in BIOS
