Hi boy8964,
It might be easier to download and install mmc 3.0. You can download it from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=61fc1c66-06f2-463c-82a2-cf20902ffae0&DisplayLang=en

I think the simplest way do solve this problem is that to reinstall xp using another CD. Your old CD may has some problem.
