Recently, I messed up my MBR on a dual-boot computer with Windows XP SP1 on the primary drive and Kubuntu Dapper Drake (v. 6.06) on the second drive. After some trouble, I eventually searched around and decided to use the GAG Boot Manager to get access to Windows XP. After I was able to access the drive, I decided to continue to reinstall my system. Everything went smoothly until Windows XP started to copy the necessary files to the hard drive. At that point, I got this error message:
Setup cannot copy the file licwmi.dl_
I clicked on Browse and the file appeared to be on the CD, but the installer does not recognize it. Would it be possible for me to get a copy of that file, put it on CD or a USB drive, and let the installer use that file instead?

Im guessing you could copy the contents of the cd and add that file and reburn it. Also is the _ in the filename on the cd?

Are you wiping the drive (or partition) and doing a fresh install or are you trying to write over the old Windows installation?
