The first thing to remember is that you can't host multiple websites with IIS on a Win2k Pro machine.  That version of IIS only allows a single (default) website among other limitations (ie. no host headers, no more than 10 simultaneous connections, etc.), so even if it's installed properly, you won't be able to create additional websites.

The error message you're getting implies that one of the files is corrupt or the source media (ie. your cd) is damaged.  I would try to install with another CD and see what happens.

@ humeniuk,

I am using w2k only for developing and testing purpose. Before I was able to give users with web admin permission to access Internet service manager but even after I installed IIS without error and gave users web admin permission, users are not able browse the ISM, they only see computer name there, no www is not available when they right click restart IIS optin there and not able to restart.

how to solve the problem?

That's a strange one.  I'm not sure what else to suggest.
