AddRemove programs Windows Setup -  copy file ftpmib.dl_ fails

I'm Trying to add FTP to XP Pro.
  -  in Add/Remove Windows Components - IIS services - Checked "FTP Protocol Service" OK
and it starts the process and then asks to insert Windows XP Professional SP2 CD".  I have 2 CD's - one is XP Pro and the other is SP2. File browser shows XP PRO has the i386 folder and the FILE IS ACTUALLY THERE - yet even several retries and moving the CD to another computer on a LAN doesn't seem to help...(It doesn't find it on the SP2 CD, either.)

run the following command at dos prompt

esentutl /p %windir%\security\database\secedit.sdb

this will reset security so not looking for original or possibly corrupt secedit.sdb.

worked for me.

That worked great! - the Add/Remove install picked up some things off the XP Pro CD and then went on the finish.

However, I am still having trouble logging in to an FTP site that I can log into on other computers on this LAN. I Have "enable folder view on FTP sites " checked in Internet Options Advanced....this is a slightly different issue than the topic, however.
