installing adobe reader 4.05 or 5.05 for winnt2000

i get an out of space error with either version.
 i am trying to install from internet, or from cd. I am under the admin account. the drive had 4gb free.
i saw on the adobe page about setting up a temp file, but all the other nt2000 machines did not need this temp file.

1) make sure that your temp directort is defined like on a working machine.
you can use the
command from a DOS window in win2k to see the settings.

2) You could have a hardware problem, RAM, motherboard or IDE drive problem.

Run a good diagnostics program !

I hope this helps !
1) Run chkdsk and/or defrag the volume. It may be corrupted in some manner.

2) Copy the Install files to the Hard drive and then try to install.

I hope this helps !
Try also to install in safe mode.
