file cdrom.sys corrupted during install

I'm trying to install a NT 4.0 Server from a CD-ROM. During the file copy operation it goes so well, but after it does the first boot, I get the message "The file cdrom.sys is corrupted. Setup failed."
The file cdrom.sys is OK on the CD - I just copied it to my hard disk, with no problems.
PS.: I have tried to install from the same hard disk, too!
Any help? Please!

You could try to interrupt the 1st boot inserting a DOS boot diskette with all drivers to enable the CD-ROM, copy the corrupted file from the CD to the install directory and then, remove the diskete reboot allow the NT to complete the install procedure.
Good luck

I have tried that already! Think I'm going to change the CD on Microsoft. Thank You!
