Problems with Multiple Boot Partitions in Windows 2000

I am a MCSE student with Multiple Boot computers.  On the computer in question I have a C-drive which contains XP Professional, D-drive contains 2K Professional, & E-drive contains 2K Adv. Svr. & a F-drive (80gb data drive). During one of my labs I was instructed me to blow away my Advanced Server OS, and reload.  This worked correctly and I can get into my 2K Professional OS, but I was not able to load my XP Professional.  I decided to repair my XP Prof. boot by reloading my XP Professional from the orginal CD, and while doing so I recveived this error message during the installing devices portion:
 
unregmp2.exe Entry Point not Found
The procedure entry point GetIUMS could not be located in the dynamic link library MSDART.DLL
 
This stops the reinstalling of the XP OS.  Is their a way to correct this error without completely reinstalling a clean copy of Win XP Prof?
 
May be through one of the other OS's?
Any other thoughts?

Your version of msdart.dll may be corrupt: run sfc /scannow to see if that will fix it.

I have also rerun the repair install when I got this error and everything was ok the second time.
