Reporting Services:  Installation Error:  "The error code is 2755."

I am attempting to install Enterprise Edition of SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services onto a server.  After I answer all the wizard questions, and actual installation is about to begin, I see this error popup:

"The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package.  This may indicate a problem with this package.  The error code is 2755."

And the whole thing crashes.  What could be causing this?  I copied the ENT folder straight from the MSDN DVD.  

Any ideas?

Have you tried installing directly from the DVD?  If the server doesn't have a DVD drive then you could share one from another PC and then map that drive to the server.

Mapping a network drive did not work.  I ended up physically going to the facility and loading the DVD from the computer directly.  That worked.

simon_kirk, I'll give you a B because it was a step in the right direction.

Thanks both for your help.
