Installing Java 2 SDK, SE v1.4.2_07

I'm trying to install Java 2 SDK, SE v1.4.2_07.  During the install I get this message

"Error 1335. The cabinet file 'Data1.cab' required for this installation is corrupt and cannot be used. This could indicate a network error, an error reading from the CD-ROM, or a problem with this package."

My OS - XP sp2

I had a previous version of java and decided to upgrade. I removed it in add remove programs and when I try to install, I get the message you see above. The only thing I can find online is to reinstall the OS. Can somebody out there help?
