I have played with a few HP printers, and they seem very particular with their setups.  Here's what I have found.  With Windows 2000, you need to have (going from memory here, so I could be off)  Service Pack 3.  Need to have Internet Explorer (I think they actually want V6 installed).  You can't plug in the printer until the software asks you to plug it in.  So I would make sure you have all the latest updates, and go from there.

Good Luck!

Usually you get that message if you are not logged in as administrator when installing.

No need to shout ;)
I only mentioned the most common cause, people often overlook the obvious.
Other common causes are:
wrong version of windows installer(msi)
locked or protected system files.
XP needs SP1

From your screenshot, space should not be a problem, except some badly written install scripts can fail if there is too much space (more than they expect)
